People reported plumes of smoke coming from the Weymouth Relief Road

Dorset Police and Fire Crews from Weymouth and Dorchester were called to the A354 Weymouth Relief Road just after 10am to reports of a van on fire.

The road has been reopened. It was closed due to road surface damage and fuel.

Travel Dorset say the road has been reopened but a rolling roadblock is in place due to road damage.

There's no reports of any injuries at the moment.

Dorset Police have requested recovery of the vehicle.
