A blazing taxi caused two lanes of the A2 to close on Saturday afternoon (August 10) in Gravesend.

The blue London taxi caught fire at around 4.10pm just 300 yards from the Gravesend turn-off on the A2 coastbound carriageway.

Two crews from Kent Fire and Rescue Service were called and Kent Police and Highways Agency officers also attended.

Two coastbound lanes had to be closed while firefighters battled the blaze for 20 minutes.

Nobody was injured and the incident is not being treated as suspicious.
