Flames engulfed a coach on a street in Leominster after the fuel tank ruptured.

Luckily there were no passengers on the coach when it went up in flames on Buckfield Road, Leominster at about 8.45pm on Sunday.

Two fire crews, one from Leominster and one from Kingsland, were called to the blaze, which completely destroyed the coach which belonged to Hereford firm M&S Coaches.

They used two hose reel water jets, a foam extinguisher and breathing apparatus to tackle the fire and put it out.

A spokeswoman for Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue said the vehicle was already well alight when crews got tot he scene.

She said: "There were no passengers evacuated and no one was hurt.

"The fire was caused by a ruptured fuel tank."
