A lorry fire closed the main A6 for two-an-a-half hours on Thursday evening.

The alarm was raised just before 6.30pm that a cab of a HGV in Dove Holes was well alight.

Fire crews from Buxton and Whaley Bridge were called to the layby at Katie’s Diner to deal with the incident.

The road was re-opened at 9pm.
