A BIN lorry carrying three men overturned and burst into flames after colliding with a kerb in West Drayton.
Three fire engines tackled the blaze on the A408 Stockley Road just before 9am on Thursday.
The lorry completely blocked the busy road southbound, and rubbish bags could be seen strewn across the road and pavement.
A London Fire Brigade (LFB) spokesperson said: “Firefighters were called to an overturned dustbin lorry on Stockley Road in West Drayton.
“Three men inside the lorry were treated at the scene by the London Ambulance Service.
Firefighters from Wembley and Hillingdon were at the scene and took just an half an hour to put out the flames.
Stockley Road was closed with delays southbound at the Horton Road junction with diversions being put in place.
Metropolitan Police were still at the scene until 11.30am.
A spokesperson for the police said: “We were called at 8.46am to Stockley Road, near the bridge, to reports that a dust cart had collided with a kerb and overturned.”
They confirmed no one was injured in the incident.
