A SECTION of the A64 has been closed this afternoon due to a car fire.

The vehicle was travelling on the eastbound carriageway when it caught fire at just before 3pm, about 100m past the turn-off to Askham Bryan.

Both lanes of the eastbound carriageway were closed for almost half an hour while firefighters extinguished the blaze.

One lane of the carriageway has now reopened, but one lane will remain closed until the vehicle can be removed.

Nobody was injured in the incident.
