Marmite spill sharply divides delayed motorists

‘I’m loving it, the whole Marmite thing,” laughs Maureen Travers stuck in traffic on the M1 for three hours. “I know some people hate traffic delays but it gave me a chance to catch up with friends on Facebook, and listen to South Yorkshire Radio, and the yeasty smell of Marmite – which I love – made it that much better.’

But account executive Mike Hargreaves is a confirmed jam hater. ‘I hate Marmite as well. And the radio has been doing nothing but jam jokes and traffic puns. ‘A hole has opened up on the A1 and police are looking into it,’ ‘A lorry load of toilets destined for a police station are missing, detectives say they have nothing to go on.’ It’s like being trapped inside an episode of the Two Ronnies, while being subject to the smell of a thousand people with an unmentionable infection.”
