HGV Lorry on fire

M40 northbound, between Junction 1A (M25 interchange) and Junction 2 (Beaconsfield)

One appliance and crew from Gerarrds Cross attended.

The lorry was carrying a load of 22 thousand litres of liquid fertiliser when its brakes overheated. The firefighters used a dry powder extinguisher, and a thermal imaging camera.

The Highways Agency stopped the traffic on the affected carriageway while the firefighters worked at the scene.
