Lily was on her way to Blackpool with partner Sam Wadsworth when an oxygen tanker caught fire, causing three hours of delays during sizzling temperatures.

Full-time mum Lily from York, North Yorkshire, said: “We were driving down the M62 having just stopped at the services when we saw a big cloud of smoke, and all of sudden came to a standstill.

“When we got stuck in the traffic jam I spat my dummy out as we had all these plans – I’m quite a diva.

“This was at about 12.30pm and on social media it said it was looking like we’d be there until 5pm, we were gutted.

Lily said she decided to soak up some rays after becoming frustrated at the long wait

“I suddenly thought b*gger this, I want a tan. While I’m here I might as well make the most of it.”

She added: “I wasn’t bothered about people looking at me.

“The way the weather was I thought there might be people further down the motorway doing the same but I guess not given the number of people who commented on the picture I posted on social media.

“I’ve never done it before but at the time I just did what I needed to do.

“I sunned myself for about 20 minutes then there was talk that people were going to start moving so I jumped back in the van. I got a lovely tan.”

Sam said: “It was a case of making the best of a bad situation – might as well get a tan while we were there.

“We were just sat on the barriers on the central reservation and then Lily got the blanket out.
