The lorry driver escaped unhurt.

He managed to detach his tractor unit from the trailer before driving to safety.

The blazing load and trailer caused considerable damage to the road surface.

Fire crews and police officers from Derbyshire attended the scene.

And rescue services from Stapleford in Nottinghamshire recommended drivers to “avoid the area if possible”.
