Huge lorry fire closes A1(M) in Yorkshire
A huge lorry fire shut part of the A1(M) near Harrogate last night.
The southbound carriageway between junctions 49 and 48 - Dishforth and Boroughbridge - was closed after the vehicle caught fire at around midnight.
One lane has now re-opened but two remain closed for recovery work.
At the height of the incident, part of the northbound carriageway was also blocked due to smoke.
