Emergency services are at the scene of a huge lorry fire, which has caused a road to close.

The fire broke out at around 3am this morning on Dock Road, Tilbury and appears to have engulfed the entire front of the vehicle.

Dock Road remains completely closed by police near to Church Road this morning while the incident is ongoing.

Drivers and commuters should expect traffic and delays in the area, with the fire starting close to Tilbury Train Station.

It is also right near to Tilbury Docks, so may cause problems for those travelling towards Tilbury Town.

The fire service have been contacted for comment.
