A lorry fire on the M40 northbound is causing delays in both directions this afternoon.

One lane is closed and traffic is queuing between junction 4 for Handy Cross and junction 5 for Stokenchurch. 

Two lanes were originally closed but one has reopened now that the fire has been extinguished. 

Firefighters from High Wycombe, Marlow, Beaconsfield and an officer attended the scene at around 4.08pm. 

They used one hose reel, two sets of breathing apparatus and a thermal imaging camera.

The M40 London-bound is also slow, due to drivers slowing down to look at the incident. 

More information as we get it.
