The southbound slip road at Scotch Corner was shut this evening following a vehicle fire.

Firefighters attended the scene of the incident, with witnesses saying a small van had caught fire.

The slip road is closed and the A1(M) was down to a single lane southbound due to the blaze.

The fire was causing long tailbacks southbound with delays also reported on the northbound carriageway due to people slowing to watch the incident.
