Dozens of bags of flour that fell from truck burst and led to the closure of three lanes on the M50 this morning.

Motorists exercised extra caution on the M50 this morning after a lorry shed its load - in this case, bags of flour.

Up to three lanes were blocked near the toll on northbound lane.

The scene was cleared before midday - but the quips about a mobile M50 Bake-Off rumbled on throughout the day.

The Garda Traffic Twitter account was inundated with people saying they 'kneaded' some time to clear the road.
