A large fire sparked by a crash between two lorries has closed a busy route in Fife.

No-one was injured in the collision on the A92 near Lochgelly interchange at about 9.30am on Wednesday.

It is thought to have occurred while the vehicles were in slow-moving traffic.

Pictures on social media showed large flames and thick smoke billowing from the articulated lorries, with reports the smoke could be seen in Edinburgh.

Police Scotland said the road has been closed and firefighters are at the scene.

A force spokesman said: "We can now advise that the collision on the A92 at the Lochgelly interchange involved two articulated lorries.

"As a result of this incident, both vehicles are now on fire and emergency services are in attendance.

"The road is expected to be closed for at least three hours and local diversions have been put in place.

"Motorists are advised to avoid the area and use alternative routes."
