Photos after sugar lorry fire on A1 at Stretton
A lorry that caught fire on the A1 was carrying a cargo of sugar.
Firefighters were called to a northbound stretch near Stretton at about 5am this morning (Tuesday, June 7).
Only the cab of the lorry remained recognisable after the fire was extinguished.
Police closed the A1 northbound at Stretton and the road has stayed shut since. The road will have to be repaired before it is fully reopened.
Proposed roadworks on the A606 at Empingham have been postponed because of the fire, to enable drivers to use the A606 between the A1 and Oakham as a diversion.
A crash on the A151 at Corby Glen has also been causing delays.
