There were severe delays and slow moving traffic on the A14 heading east today after a lorry caught fire.

The vehicle was located near junction 51 with traffic building-up between there and junction 52 at the A140 turn-off.

The road heading east was restricted to one lane during the incident.

According to the AA, traffic flow had slowed with an average speed of just 5mph and delays of up to 19 minutes.

Dashcam footage from a driver on the road shows three fire engines at the scene.

There was also a view of several fire crews using hoses to extinguish an already burnt-out lorry.

The road had later been cleared.
