Huge lorry fire causing delays on M2
Tuesday 14th November 2017
A HUGE lorry fire has caused the M2 to be closed near to the junction with Blue Bell Hill.
Fire fighters are dealing with the blaze on the coastbound stretch of the motorway which has sent smoke billowing across both carriageways.
Long delays are building, as videos and pictures appear on social media of the fire.
The A229 was also closed in both directions as the blaze continued. The M2 is set to be closed until at least 2pm, and it is thought the bridge will need inspecting before the A229 is allowed to reopen.
