Police have warned of delays and disruption as they transport the giant tank across the county.
The tank – which is empty, around 40 metres long and six-and-a-half metres in diameter – started its journey yesterday.
This week will see another oxygen tank journey through Staffs - with our @Tactical_Police team picking it up today. Many of you have ❓❓❓ so we'll be answering a few of them in the coming days.— Staffordshire Police (@StaffsPolice) June 29, 2020

It will make its way through Newcastle-under-Lyme Stone, Stafford, Cannock, Brownhills and Shenstone – before finishing in Warwickshire on Friday.
The tank is the second of four oxygen tanks travelling throughout the county in the upcoming weeks, with officers monitoring its progress.
It was travelling through Stafford today before heading to Rugeley and ending the day in Great Wyrley.
Tree cutters and BT engineers are also working to ensure the load fits under trees and cables throughout the journey.
