Bin lorry fire in Daventry

A ROAD was closed for a time this morning (Tuesday) after a fire in a bin lorry.

The bin lorry, run by a private firm, had been on the Low March and was driving out of the estate when at around 7.20am smoke was noticed billowing from the back.

Two fire engines from Daventry were sent to the scene and the road was closed for around 30 minutes.

The fire was under control by 8.20am and the road has since reopened.
