Crews have extinguished a fire involving a lorry and its load of granulated coal on the M25.

Firefighters were called to the clockwise side of the motorway, just before Junction 30 (A13), and found an articulated lorry completely alight.

The lorry had shed its load, about 20 tons of granulated coal, of which about 10% was also alight.

Crews extinguished the fire by 1.50pm and left the scene in the care of the police and Highways England.

The road is likely to be closed for most of the afternoon for clean-up and recovery.
