The police had a weighty problem on their hands on Monday afternoon  - all 30 tonnes of it.

A huge concrete block fell off a trailer as it was being carried along Corradino Road, Paola, causing part of the road surface to collapse. It reportedly damaged a water main.

Traffic was diverted until investigations were held and a crane was brought to the scene. Fortunately, no one was injured.

The concrete block is used to anchor fish pens at sea.
