Emergency services are currently dealing with a serious incident on the A1(M) at Dishforth.

The incident involves a lorry which was parked on the hard shoulder of the South-bound carriageway just after junction 49.

Police were alerted to the incident at 4.02PM today, following a fire which occurred in the trailer of the lorry which is currently causing smoke to blow over both north and south-bound carriageways.

The fast thinking Lorry driver un-hitched his cab from the trailer and moved the cab away from the trailer.

The A1(M) has been closed in both directions to allow North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue to deal with the fire.
