FIREFIGHTERS are urging motorists to avoid the M25 while they tackle a lorry fire.

There are severe delays anticlockwise between J25 (Enfield) and J24 (Potters Bar), and there is congestion back to J27 (M11).

London Fire Brigade was called to the scene at 7.36am to reports of a car transporter, which was carrying ten vehicles, alight.

Six fire engines and 30 firefighters are at the scene.

A spokesman for the brigade said the fire had been brought under control, but is not fully out yet.
