Emergency service vehicles are en route to a truck which is ablaze on the Galway to Dublin road.

Heavy traffic congestion is reported on the M6 near Moate as a result of the incident.

Smoke from the flames coming from the vehicle, which is on the eastbound side of the motorway, is making visibility extremely difficult for motorists in the area and caution is advised.

Anyone travelling the route is warned to expect delays as emergency crews attempt to make the situation safe.
