DRAMATIC VIDEO AND PICS: Road closure after huge bin lorry fire in Chapel
A major road has been closed as firefighters attend a huge bin lorry fire in Chapel-en-le-Frith.
A diversion is in place after a lorry caught fire on the A6 Chapel Bypass, near to the junction with Foresters Way, at around 11.30am this morning (Friday, March 17).
Eyewitness Luke Boulton, who took this video of the scene, said: “I work on the industrial estate and we just saw this great big black cloud appear.
“We have seen a few crashes there, but this was quite something. All the front cab was on fire.
“They have closed the road, but thankfully it appears no-one has been hurt.”
A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said the road was “likely to be closed for some time.”
