A fire to a lorry - which caused a Greenhithe road to temporarily close - has been reopened.

The incident occurred in London Road, near to the Esso Garage, at about 10am this morning (December 29).

The road is currently open in both directions.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “We were called at 9.58am to a report of a lorry on fire in London Road, Greenhithe.

“The fire has now been put out and the road is expected to be reopened shortly.”

Earlier delays are now starting to clear.
