This photo of the lorry fire on the A38 near Alfreton was sent to us by a Derbyshire Times reader via Facebook.

The A38 northbound to J28 M1 is now closed because the fire is compromising the structure of Alfreton Road bridge which is also shut.

Derbyshire Roads Police has tweeted that another vehicle is on fire in a separate incident also on the northbound carriageway.

Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service has tweeted that the A38 northbound carriageway will remain closed until at least the late evening to allow essential resurfacing work.
