Trailer full of Pringles burnt to a crisp on UK motorway

Thousands of tubes of Pringles were burnt to a crisp when a trailer caught fire on a motorway in England.

Flames took hold of the HGV on the M1 motorway at about 07:00, yesterday (January 12) closing the northbound exit slip road in Derbyshire.

The driver was unhurt and managed to save the tractor unit before escaping, Highways England said.

The incident meant that the road did not reopen until about 14:20.
