Thick plumes of smoke have been spotted above Harrow after a lorry fire.

Locals took to social media to share photographs of the smoke over Kenton Road, with many left wondering what had caused it.

It has since been confirmed that the huge amounts of smoke were caused by a lorry that caught on fire on Saturday afternoon.

Authorities have confirmed the main road through Harrow was closed for about an hour on Saturday lunchtime.

All road closures have since been lifted but local police have warned that traffic is still heavy in the area.

Bus routes were forced to divert around the area.
