MOTORISTS in this evening’s rush hour are facing delays after the A50 near Toyota was closed in both directions for crews to tackle a car fire.

Firefighters from Kingsway and Ascot Drive in Derby were called to the fire on the westbound carriageway between junctions three and four of the A50 at 5.31pm today.

The vehicle on fire is parked in a lay-by but the road has had to be closed in both directions for firefighters to tackle the blaze using a hose reel jet and a main line.

The fire was reported to have been extinguished at 6pm and crews are now damping down with the road expected to reopen imminently.
