A lane closure is in place on the Hengist Way at Ramsgate following a car fire this morning (February 2).

Kent Police and Kent Fire and Rescue Service were called at 11.10am to the blaze.

Traffic is reportedly backlogged at Lord of the Manor and the Richborough Way.

One motorist at the scene said drivers are U-turning to get out of the queue.

He added: “They are endangering the lives of others by going the wrong way round the roundabout. ”

A Kent Police spokesman said: “Officers are at the scene along with Kent Fire and Rescue Service and a lane closure is in place while the incident is dealt with. No injuries have been reported.”
