The fire occurred on the eastbound carriageway, but it ended up causing both sides to be closed for a while. The driver managed to exit his cab before the fire really took hold and was uninjured.

The crane was recovered by two All Terrains from the Emsley Crane Hire fleet, but it left behind a substantial crater in the road which was due to be resurfaced overnight ready for reopening this morning.

Highways England said: “A complex and protracted recovery operation is expected with resurfacing required following extensive fire damage to the carriageway. Resurfacing is scheduled to take place overnight.
