Both lanes of the M1 citybound Between Lurgan and Moira were closed this morning because of a lorry fire which caused delays for many commuters.

The fire broke out in the cab of the vehicle and debris had spread across the motorway.

Police advised for motorists to exercise caution and delays remained after the road was cleared and reopened.
