Local fire chief Benedict Redgate this morning asked that local alcoholics avoid the large ethanol spill currently being cleared up on the A14.
A tanker carrying the pure alcohol overturned at 6.20 this morning at the Bythorn turning, west of Huntingdon.
Within minutes of the news breaking, groggy, hung-over wreck-heads started turning up with those wide-bore drinking straws you get in a KFC Crush ‘em. “They were pulling up near the accident scene, and rushing out to slurp up the chemical,” explained Redgate.
“Obviously, this is extremely dangerous – and that’s before you consider that a drink goes really well with a cigarette. Potentially, the whole of Huntingdon could explode!”
