DRIVERS are faced delays after a van caught fire near Dorchester.

The A35 was blocked in both directions between the Monkeys Jump roundabout and the B3159 junction.

A spokeswoman for Dorset Fire and Rescue Service said crews were called to the scene near the Morn Gate holiday park just before 8pm and found a commercial vehicle well alight.

They used two hose reel jets to extinguish the blaze.
