Roadkill? Marmite Akimbo! Marmite Tanker Overturns on M1

We are extremely tempted to dash up the M1 to assist in the clean-up operation after a tanker carrying more than 20 tonnes of our yeasty spread of choice overturned on the motorway.  From what we have gathered it's Marmite mayhem on there!  However, we are not too sure about the reception we would receive if we turned up with a camping toaster, tub of butter, an ample supply of Warburtons thick toastie loaves, knives, plates, bibs and a picnic table in tow.  Picture the scene as we set up the said picnic table on the hard shoulder and did our best to robustly consume some/part all of the savoury spill, to do our bit! But,  we could encounter a little resistance to our altruistic activities from the local constabulary, who might tell us to "Move on, there's nothing to see, the party's over" etc. ..... It also throws up several probing questions like .... does spilt Marmite count as road kill and is there such a thing as a Marmite-necker?
