Lorry fire shuts junction 5 and 6 of M2 coast bound carriageway

By Sean McPolin

A fire involving a lorry containing alcohol has caused delays on the M2 motorway.

A stretch between junction 5 and 6 on the coast-bound carriageway of the M2 was temporarily shut between the Stockbury roundabout and the Ashford/Faversham turn-off following a fire involving a lorry trailer.

Firefighters have extinguished the fire, and all lanes are now open.
