The eastbound section of the A66 near Penrith has reopened but westbound remains closed following a fire on a crane travelling on top of a lorry. The roads around the scene are extremely busy as it's a major route crossing England from east to west.
It's understood part of the carriageway on the westbound section will have to be resurfaced which may cause disruption for some time. The driver of the HGV escaped injury and it's not thought anyone else has been hurt.
