It's not the truck that exploded - it was the custard. 26 metric tons of it, all going to one local supermarket. Wow, you Brits eat a lot of custard.
A lorry driver has been forced to flee after the 60,000 tins of custard and rice pudding he was transporting began to explode. The cans of dessert exploded "like fireworks" after the a blaze broke out on his HGV.
Fire crews raced to the blaze but the desserts were too well alight and the whole lorry was consumed in just 20 minutes.
