Firefighters were called after a car caught fire on the M11 this afternoon (Thursday).

Two crews from Saffron Walden, along with others from Newport and Stansted, arrived at the scene, between junctions eight and nine of the southbound carriageway, shortly after the fire was reported just after 2pm.

The incident commander reported that the car was 100 per cent alight.

Firefighters used two hose reels to tackle the fire. It was extinguished by about 2.40pm.

  • I drove past on the Northbound at about 14:10. The car was indeed 100% alight, thick black smoke and fierce dense flames totally enveloped the car. It looked as if it was a Range Rover and worryingly there didn't seem to be any people watching nearby so i hope everyone got out ok. I was concerned because on the drive north to the A14 slip road which must have taken 5 to 7 minutes i didn't see any emergency crews on route.
