Lorry Carrying Locomotive
Catches Fire on M5

Burnham-On-Sea - Two lanes of the southbound carriageway, near Sedgemoor Services, were closed while fire crews dealt with the incident, pictured here.
Eyewitness Lester Solway told, "The Alleys low loader lorry was carrying the Royal Scot 6100 steam locomotive from Crewe to the West Somerset Railway when a fire broke out at the rear of the low loader."
Two fire appliances from Weston-super-Mare and one from Burnham attended the blaze, along with the Highways Agency.
The hard shoulder remained closed until after 19:00 when an alternative lorry was brought to the scene.
