A PHOTOGRAPH of a camper van on fire on the A1(M) near Boroughbridge has just been released.

The picture was taken by a reader of the Ripon Gazette and shows the distraught owners of the vehicle watching as firefighters tackle the blaze on the south-bound carriageway between junctions 48 and 49 on Tuesday, December 27.

No-one was injured in the fire but the south-bound carriageway was closed to allow the emergency services to clear the scene, causing long tail-backs and delays for bank holiday motorists.
