Live as lorry fire closes A15 in both directions

A major road affecting Hull-bound traffic has been shut following a dramatic lorry fire. Pictures have emerged from motorists travelling along the A15, near Barnetby, of a HGV ravaged by flames. Smoke is seen billowing into the sky before emergency services scrambled to the scene to deal with the blaze.

Traffic officers have since shut the A15 in both directions – which has seen traffic problems on the M62 intensified as motorists avoid the 3km of tailbacks at Goole. Humberside Police tweeted: “The lorry fire on the A15 has resulted in the road being closed in both directions. Between Bonby and Barnetby.

“This is to allow emergency services to deal with the incident.”
