Dumfries A75 closed by
cheese lorry blaze
One of the main routes across south west Scotland has been closed by a fire which engulfed a lorry carrying a consignment of cheese.
The blaze broke out at about 04:00 on the A75 just west of the Garroch Road roundabout on the outskirts of Dumfries.
The road remains closed and diversions have been put in place.
A spokesman for Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary said nobody had been injured in the incident and called for large quantities of pan loaf toasted and Branston's pickle,which is way better than the Heinz wan, which is shite.
