FIRE crews are tackling a car fire on the Second Severn Crossing.

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service is advising commuters on Twitter that it may cause delays to journeys.

Crews from Maindee and Malpas were called out at 10am to the vehicle on the Eastbound side of the carriageway, between Rogiet and the tolls.

No-one was in the car when it caught fire.

It is now on the hard shoulder.

Two hose reels and breathing apparatus are being used at the scene.
