Traffic meltdown after lorry carrying chocolate goes up in flames

Drivers have been warned they face long delays after a lorry believed to be laden with chocolate bars went up in flames on a major road.

Three out of the four lanes on the London-bound A2 near Bluewater shopping centre in Kent were closed on Thursday morning.

Highways England said the lorry's load had melted on to the carriageway and they urged drivers to allow extra time for their journeys.
