A lorry transporting fresh meat became a giant barbecue when it caught fire on Sunday morning.

A lorry transporting fresh meat became a giant barbecue when it caught fire in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The vehicle was travelling along the A1 motorway close to the Sandweiler exit at around 1am when its tyres became engulfed by flames.

A team of seven firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze, which was thought to have started when the tyres overheated.

The fire spread quickly because of the flammable properties of the cargo. No-one was injured during the incident.
