Lorry fire closes part of M5 in Exeter ahead of rush hour

Comments (0)[1]

A lorry fire on the M5 in Exeter closed junction 30 and caused traffic delays this morning. Emergency services were sent to the M5 southbound exit slip road at 6.46am this morning. Traffic was reported to be slow and queuing as the fire was tackled at the junction for the A376 / A379 (Exeter / Service Areas).

Both lanes heading down the slip road towards Sandygate Roundabout were closed while emergency services attended the fire. The road was reported reopened at 7.30am. It is likely the road will have to close again for the lorry to be recovered.
