Drivers warned of M6 delays after lorry fire

A lorry fire early on Tuesday morning led to tailbacks of up to five miles (8km) for commuters on the M6 in Warwickshire.

Emergency services and traffic officers responded to the incident between the southbound M6 toll and junction 3 near Coventry at about 03:40 BST.

National Highways West Midlands shut two lanes while a complex recovery and clear-up operation was carried out.

Drivers faced up to 60-minute delays in the area, which started to ease as the route reopened at about 13:00 BST.
