Video: Straw bale fire smoulders on

Road closures have remained in place on the A15 around Silk Willoughby and Quarrington today (Tuesday, October 21) following a straw bale fire on Sunday.

The road was closed just after 6.15pm on Sunday around the A15/A153 roundabout because of heavy smoke in the area as a result of the blaze.

The closures remained in place today (Tuesday, October 21) as a precaution as some of the bales were still smouldering and also because the road is being used as the bales were being cleared from the area.

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