Police close the northern lane of Pine Hill Rd, Dunedin, after a tallow spill at 11am on Saturday.

A diversion was set up through Fea St for an hour after a truck became stuck in ''animal fat or effluent'' that had been lost from another truck, Senior Sergeant Matt Scoles said.

Contractors solved the problem shortly after lunchtime with a grit truck.

The vehicle which lost the slippery load was not located.
