Chicken Truck Wipe Out

In England a truck with 3,000 chickens skidded into the crash barrier on the central reservation and across the outside lane of the A80 Glasgow-Stirling road.

Police, vets and chicken catchers were called in, and the road network was gridlocked as the clear-up operation began.

Some of the chickens died instantly. Others were seriously injured and vets were called to put them down.

Up to 400 died. The rest flew, confused, around the road, distracting drivers heading north and creating a major headache for the emergency services.

Fiona McLean, 37, from Glasgow, said: "There were chickens everywhere, running about the roads and up the embankments. It would have been comical if it had not caused so much gridlock."
