Bra lorry fire shuts A14 for hours in Cambridgeshire
A lorry full of bras brought a major road to a standstill when it caught fire.
Motorists reported being held in traffic for hours after the blaze erupted on the A14 near Fenstanton, Cambridgeshire.
Firefighters posted a photo of the scene showing boxes of underwear which had been removed from the lorry.
The road, which was closed in both directions at about 09:30 GMT, finally re-opened at 20:00.
Cambridgeshire Fire Service said the fire was out by about 15:00 but the HGV needed to be emptied and moved.
The road had been closed between Cambridge and Huntingdon, with one frustrated driver posting on Twitter to say she had been stuck in her car for four hours.
Fire service group commander Stuart Smith said: "I appreciated people are stuck in traffic on both sides of the carriageway and. I'd ask anyone who needs to travel in the area to avoid it and take different routes."
The service said the road would need to be resurfaced once the HGV had been recovered.
