Spare a thought for the footballers of Ebbsfleet United, who endured a round trip of almost 24 hours as they travelled to Barrow for a match last week. The cause of their delay? Baked beans.

A lorry crash on the M6 resulted in a spillage of the musical fruit across the motorway - delaying kick-off of the big game.

Still, despite the journey - and the fact that his team only came away with a point - manager Liam Daish was still able to chuckle: “I’m not full of beans at the moment”, he told reporters. See what he did there?
