A lorry was engulfed in flames on the A17 Sleaford bypass this morning (Monday) after a mechanical fault.
Fire crews from Sleaford and Billinghay tackled the flames surrounding the cab of the articulated lorry carrying sand which came to a stop near the turn off for Kirkby La Thorpe on the westbound carriageway.
The driver escaped unhurt as the alarm was raised at 11.11am but a nearby bus shelter and street lamp were also damaged by the fire.
This photo was taken by Kevin J Taylor of Sleaford Photography Group who lives in the village and saw the smoke.
