A17 partly blocked between Swineshead and Bicker Bar after lorry fire
A stretch of the A17 is partly blocked after a lorry fire.
Police say the fire has occurred between the Swineshead level crossing and Bicker Bar roundabout, near to Stump Cross Lane.
A force spokesman said that arrangements have been made to recover the vehicle – but that motorists should expect delays in the area as the lorry is partly blocking the busy road.
In Swineshead itself, High Street is already closed for water main work.
