A lorry which caught fire this morning caused further chaos on the M180 motorway.

The incident happened at 6.33am and involved the prop shaft of a heavy goods vehicle.

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service made the vehicle safe and left the matter with the driver.

The fire added to the traffic tailbacks which had been caused by the closure of the westbound carriageway for urgent repairs to be carried out at the Epworth/Crowle junction 2 overnight.
