Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) were called to a lorry alight on the London-bound carriageway of the M2, in-between Faversham and Sittingbourne earlier today.
The KFRS received the call shortly after 04:10am this morning and three fire engines and a bulk water carrier were sent to the scene, as well as a crew from the KFRS Technical Rescue Unit.
The motorway was closed in both directions whilst crews worked to extinguish the fire.
Officers from Kent Police Roads Policing Unit were also in attendance.
Drivers are advised to use the 'solid square' signed diversion route.
The coastbound carriageway of the motorway (between Jct 5 Sittingbourne and Jct 6 Faversham) re-opened at around 4:30pm but the Londonbound carriagewy is set to remain closed until the early hours of tomorrow morning, for resurfacing work and the replacement of barriers in the central reservation - please tune in to 106.9 SFM for the latest information.
