Lorries ablaze after crash that closed Worcester road

A two-lorry fire that closed a busy dual carriageway has been made worse by the woodchips one was carrying.

A man suffered chest injuries when a collision between two HGVs set them ablaze shortly before 11:30 BST on Tuesday.

The crash kept the A449 near Worcester closed both ways for hours.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "The collision caused a fire that has totally consumed one of the lorries, which was carrying wood chips."
