Essex had its' very own ash cloud yesterday as the M11 was closed southbound at junction five after a lorry containing 17 tons of magazines caught fire. The resulting tailbacks were not a pretty sight but at least the driver escaped unhurt. As if tons of burning paper wasn't enough, northbound travellers got a dollop of traffic jam too when a car overturned near the M25 junction. No reports so far have stated what publications were involved in the lorry fire, but we like to think it was Heat magazine.
