|PMP FILM ARCHIVE
A lorry crashed around midnight and turned over and caught fire melting the north bound carriageway. Both sides were closed until mid morning when southbound started again with northbound not reopening until late afternoon. This of course created havoc, it was south of Stafford but all surrounding counties including Cheshire were affected and there was little warning for drivers on the overhead information screens. I set off to film Burton on Trent with Midland Classic which I did after a very long journey. On the way back I stopped at the Uttoxeter roundabout and filmed in one shots over an hour of the lorries bumper to tail. I had to head home, as luck had it the tied in with the reopening of the northbound carriageway and once the traffic had cleared the sequence of roundabouts that courses chaos at the best of times the motorway itself was lightly trafficked. We start with the lorries passing by on the A50.
