Road closures are still in place today (Wednesday) on the A15 around Silk Willoughby and Quarrington following a straw bales fire over the weekend.

The road is likely to remain closed for the remainder of today and overnight.

The road was closed just after 6.15pm on Sunday around the A15/A153 roundabout because of heavy smoke in the area as a result of the fire which involved 24,000 bales of straw. The closure was a precautionary measure as some of the bales were still smoldering and also because the road was being used as the bales were being cleared from the area.

Drivers are asked to avoid the area and pay attention to the diversion signs in place
