THESE photos show the damage caused after fire ripped through part of a lorry in South Herefordshire.

Firefighters were called to tackle the blaze on the A40 at Pencraig, near Ross-on-Wye, at around 9am yesterday.

The fire spread to the cab of the lorry and onto the crane before firefighters wearing breathing apparatus stopped it from spreading to the rear by using compressed air foam and hose reels to extinguish the flames.

The photos were shared on Twitter by Whitchurch Fire Station.
