A broken down truck caused delays along the A428 coming into Northampton after catching fire.

Fire crews attended the scene on Bedford Road at the junction with Barnes Meadow to put out the flames coming from a flat-bed lorry.

A Northamptonshire Police spokesman said the fire created a slight delay for motorists approaching the town centre from Bedford, as the A428 had to be temporarily closed.
