A lorry load of Pringles was destroyed after a lorry caught fire on the M1.
Highways England confirmed that the northbound exit slip road at junction 25 in Derbyshire had been closed on Sunday as a result of the incident at around 7am.
The driver was reportedly able to come to a safe stop before detaching the tractor unit, with the load, trailer and road suffering damage.
Images appeared to show numerous Pringles tubes strewn across the road, many burnt beyond recognition.
Highways England announced at about 2.40pm that the exit slip road had reopened.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
