The M2 motorway has re-opened in both directions after a lorry fire at Templepatrick.

The motorway had been closed in the last hour and the PSNI advised motorists that diversions were in place through Templepatrick.

Drivers were also asked to seek alternative routes if possible.

Now police are advising that whilst the motorway has been re-opened "traffic is still slow moving in the area".
