Truck fire closes north bound lane on M50

Extremely heavy on the M50 northbound from before J11 Tallaght through to after J6 Blanchardstown where emergency services have closed all lanes as they deal with a fire. Diversions are in place via the off and on ramps at J6. Gardai say avoid the area. HGVs should note the HGV cordon in the city centre has been lifted to help alleviate delays. 

The driver managed to unhitch the trailer, no reports of any injuries
