The B4115 between the A46 and Hill Wootton was closed to drivers as the spillage was being dealt with.

A spokesman for Warwickshire County Council said: “Plastic bottles fell off a lorry and as we were unsure of their contents and there was a suspicion they might be chemical, we closed the road in the interests of public safety.”
