Firefighters from Leominster Fire Station supported with crews from Kingsland Fire Station were mobilised early this morning.


A spokesperson from Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service told Hereford Voice;

"Just before 0830 this morning, 2 crews manning a pump and the water carrier from Leominster (assisted by a crew from Kingsland Fire Station) were turned out to a Large Goods Vehicle that had caught fire on the A49 going north out of Leominster.

Thankfully, the lorry driver managed to get his load containing 7 tonnes of toilet paper off the carriageway into a lay-by.

Crews tackled the blaze with the freezing conditions proving challenging. The Environmental Agency and Highway Agency were also in attendance, to assist with the fuel, oil and water run off.

The A49 lay-by coming out of Leominster will be closed for 48hrs, to enable recovery and the clean up of this incident"
