There's an expression that's come into vogue over the past 20 years or so, "shed load" (or "shedload"), meaning "a large amount". Originally, it meant "enough of something to fill a shed", but that's kinda been lost now.

I could go on.
Thus when I heard on the radio this morning that there were traffic problems on the A414 because of a shed load, I immediately wanted to know a shed load of what?
