The road was closed just after 6.15pm on Sunday following a straw bales fire and has to remain closed for the time being as the clean-up operation is still continuing. Assessments will be made later today as to when the road can be reopened.

The last attending fire crew left the scene last night to be supervised by the site owners and police.

Drivers are asked to avoid the area and pay attention to the diversion signs in place.
