The A4 highway is closed in both directions near Bergen op Zoom due to a burning truck. The truck was transporting frying fat when it caught fire. 

The road at the Zoomland junction is covered in grease and extinguishing water. The road will be closed in both directions until the fire is extinguished and the road surface has been cleaned. This is expected to take until 1:00 p.m., according to broadcaster NOS.
