A lorry carrying 100 bales of straw caught fire in Sixpenny Handley on Monday.

Around 30 firefighters were called to put out the fire near Handley Cross roundabout which started around 2:30pm.

The Environment Agency also attended the incident to deal with a spillage of diesel and the road was re-opened at 9pm.

The cause of the fire was not deliberate but is still unknown.
