Road closed as firefighters tackle HGV blaze



Firefighters are attending an incident in Cannock involving a HGV trailer carrying scrap vehicles.

One crew and the water carrier from Cannock are at the scene along with firefighters from Chase Terrace, Penkridge and the aerial ladder platform from Longton.

They used a main jet to tackle the lorry which was well alight.

Both sides of the dual carriageway are closed between the Poplar’s tip island and the island by Sainsbury’s on the Lichfield Road.

This is due to the smoke being generated by the incident.

Crews arrived at the scene at 9.45am and are currently still in attendance.
