A huge lorry fire shut part of the A1(M) near Harrogate last night.

The southbound carriageway between junctions 49 and 48 - Dishforth and Boroughbridge - was closed after the vehicle, which was transporting a cargo of chicken nuggets, caught fire at around midnight.

One lane has now re-opened but two remain closed for recovery work.

At the height of the incident, part of the northbound carriageway was also blocked due to smoke.

Councillors Pat and Graham Latty.

Here come the Lattys! Veteran councillor couple will be new Leeds Lord Mayor and Mayoress
