Van on fire

M40 between Junction 1A (M25 Interchange) and Junction 2 (Beaconsfield)

One appliance and crew from Gerrards Cross, one from Langley and one from Hillingdon attended, along with an officer.

The firefighters used:

  • One set of breathing apparatus
  • One hose reel
  • Spreader

Smoke from the fire affected both carriageways of the motorway, so a temporary road closure was put in place while firefighters worked at the scene.

The incident was left in the hands of the Highways England.
