A mobile food trailer crash blocked a motorway in central Auckland on Friday afternoon.

The crash happened near the Grafton Bridge at the city end of the Northwestern Motorway (State Highway 16).

The trailer rolled, spilling cooking oil and petrol at the scene.

It blocked the Stanley St exit, forcing traffic to be diverted along the Wellesley St exit.

The motorway has since reopened.

Both police and Fire and Emergency attended the crash. No one was reported injured.
