One appliance and one crew from Beaconsfield attended the fire on the M40 eastbound between Junction 3 (Loudwater) and Junction 2 (Beaconsfield) at 12.52pm.

The Citroen van pulled onto the hard shoulder when smoke started to appear from the vehicle.

Firefighters used a hose reel to extinguish the blaze.
