Scaffolding Lorry blaze brings Gloucester Road, Bristol, to a standstill


THIS is the dramatic scene as a blazing lorry brought one of the major roads into Bristol to a standstill.

Gloucester Road in Horfield was closed as firefighters fought the fire, on a scaffolding lorry.

The driver was alerted to flames from the rear of his cab by other motorists.

He stopped near the junction of Muller Road and dialled 999.

Firefighters using a hose reel and foam dealt with the blaze, which seriously damaged the cab of the vehicle.

No one was hurt, and it is believed the fire was caused by an electrical fault.
