A STRETCH of the M20 between Folkestone and Ashford is closed this evening after a lorry fire.
The motorway is now shut London-bound between junctions 11 and 12 as a result of the blaze.
Kent Police says the driver of the lorry escaped with a minor hand injury.
Traffic is being diverted along the A20 and there are long delays in the area.
Four fire engines from Kent Fire and Rescue Service, along with a water unit, are dealing with the fire.
UPDATE: The road reopened at 3.30am on November 30.
