Traffic chaos expected as truck bursts into flames on the M6

Heavy traffic congestion is reported on the M6 near Moate as a result of the incident.
Diversions are in place at Junction 7 as a result of the fire.
Smoke from the flames coming from the vehicle, which is on the eastbound side of the motorway, is making visibility extremely difficult for motorists in the area and caution is advised.
