Fire crews were called to the M20 this morning after a lorry caught on fire.

Two engines and a bulk water carrier arrived on the London-bound carriageway between junctions 8 and 9 at 5.25am. 

They spent an hour on the motorway and wore breathing apparatus while using compressed air foam to tackle the blaze.
