A bunch of thieves took off with boxes full of washing powder after a lorry overturned on a road in South Africa.
The lorry was full of boxes of MAQ brand washing powder when it overturned in the Midvaal municipality of north-eastern South Africa’s Gauteng Province.
A video shot by a passenger in a passing car shows hundreds of people at the scene, with many standing on the side of the felled lorry.
Many vehicles are parked nearby as people pull over to help themselves to the free goods.
A police officer is seen talking to a driver but he seems powerless to stop the looting frenzy going on behind him.
