Another, Debbie Murphy, said she heard “about 4 huge bangs” in Kettlebrook and” saw black smoke.
On social media, someone said: “Huge lorry fire and explosions on the A5 Tamworth bypass. Road closed in both directions. Be careful if you are travelling that way.”

TAP – Explosions are not normal after a road crash. Are trucks being used to move weapons? Picture of smoke only. Why not show the supposed smash location? What do you think?
Drone footage video – Large Explosions heard thorough Tamworth. Serious accident on A5. Drone footage.
IMHO – Loud bangs reported as “Large Explosions” rather than any serious ordanance. The HGV curtainside trailer roof is intact & not buckled ripped or distorted. There is no debris field. Skidmarks on the road indicate RTA. Just 2 engines in attendance. It appears at least one of the trucks was carrying something inflammable.
Note the state of the truck in this video & that was just fireworks.
Later report mentions two trucks and a car. Initial reports said only one truck. Tamworth Live Newsletter. A5 closed in both directions. Traffic held back at a distance in pictures. No explanation of any kind as to what exploded. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/newsbirmingham/police-and-fire-statement-after-car-and-two-trucks-collide-on-the-a5-in-tamworth/ar-AAYdKfq?bk=1&bk=1&ocid=msedgdhp&pc=U531&cvid=b73a9bfc7c224ba1b667eca4475d91c2
