HGV fire on M62 Junction 26 Eastbound

Appliances and crews dealing with the HGV fire
Crews were called to a HGV on fire this afternoon at around 4:45pm which had stopped just before the M62 Eastbound at its junction with the M606. First reports were of a wheel on fire but due to its severity the cab of the HGV tractor unit also became involved.

Police and Highways officers attended to close 2 lanes of the motorway during the firefighting operations, for officer safety and traffic management. There was heavy traffic congestion at the height of the fire which took some time to clear.
