"CHRISTMAS dinners may be affected" after a trailer carrying Brussels sprouts crashed and spilled its load on a Rosyth roundabout.

Admiralty Road is closed eastbound after the accident, which saw a tractor pulling the festive veg plough into a lamppost, causing the trailer to tip over on its side and the vegetables to pour out onto the carriageway.

It happened outside the catholic church of St John and St Columba and opposite the Taste of India restaurant at the roundabout where Queensferry Road meets Admiralty Road.

A tweet from South West Fife police said: "There’s been a bit of a Brussels sprouts accident at the roundabout at Admiralty Road.

"Please avoid the area if possible. Traffic and Christmas dinners may be affected.

"Apologies for any delays."

A Facebook post from the church said: "For the sake of clarity, Father Kevin (Dow) can’t stand Brussels sprouts and so this delivery is definitely at the wrong address ..."
