Ashton-under-Lyne, incident

I heard on the news that Ashton centre was closed due to an ‘incident’, so I cycled over and took a peek.
Small fire at the side of the road. I was hoping for something a bit more dramatic!


  1. What time did you get there. I was on the 330 just before 1pm and there were visible flames to be seen and terrible black smoke - A white van looked to have been completely burnt out. The whole rdbt was gridlocked and it took the bus about 10 minutes to finally make it across. Traffic travelling along the bypass must have been backed up quite a way.

  2. According to the time on the photo it was 14:58. So I missed all the action. Typical.
