Motorists advised to avoid M50 following van fire

Motorists have been advised to avoid the M50 motorway following a van fire on the northbound lane.

Smoke from the blaze, which broke out between Junction 6 Blanchardstown and Junction 5 Finglas, is affecting visibility and causing heavy traffic build-ups on both ways of the motorway, so gardaĆ­ are advising motorists to use alternative routes if possible.

No injuries have been reported and the fire has been extinguished by Dublin Fire Brigade but delays still remain in place.
