Road re-opened in Luddenden Foot after van fire

Have your say

A ROAD had to be shut in Halifax earlier today after a van stuck in the snow caught fire.

Stocks Lane in Luddenden Foot was closed for around an hour and a half by the blaze.

Fire crews were called out at 10.09am and said they had difficulty getting to the fire because of the snow.

With the help of tractors and gritters, they managed to put the fire out and the road was re-opened.
