Car on fire on M7 caused tailbacks along motorway
15:05 Wednesday 16th of May 2018

This was the scene earlier this morning when a vehicle burst into flames on the M7 on the Kildare/Laois border.

The incident happened on the southbound Hard Shoulder between Junction 15 (Ballybrittas) and Junction 16 (Portlaoise).

The fire resulted in congestion back up the M7 towards Monasterevin and Newbridge  and further east due to onlookers slowing  down.
