A truck carrying pigs overturned and ended up in a ditch on the A15 from Nijmegen to Gorinchem. The wandering pigs are causing quite a traffic jam between Geldermalsen and Leerdam, RTL Nieuws reports.

Traffic information service ANWB expects that the traffic problems will last the rest of the morning.. Emergency services are at the scene trying to catch the pigs and bring them to safety.

The ANWB advises travelers heading towards Rotterdam to rather take a detour via Arnhem and Utrecht.
