The M11 ground to a standstill earlier after a car caught ablaze.

At around 6am fire fighters from Woodford, Hainault and Walthamstow were called to the M11 between junctions 4 and 5.

There they found a car fully alight.

The vehicle was completely destroyed before they could get the blaze under control.

At 8am delays of six minutes with speeds stuck around 20mph were still being experienced on the same stretch of road.
