London North Circular double decker bus catches fire


A double decker bus has been destroyed after it caught on fire on London's North Circular Road.

London Fire Brigade said it was called to reports of a bus alight on the A406 at the Woodford New Road junction at 06:58 GMT.

Three fire engines attended the blaze, and the fire was brought under control almost an hour and a half later.

Transport for London (TfL) said the bus was not in passenger service at the time and there will be a full investigation into the incident.

A BBC News website reader filmed the aftermath as he was driven past the scene.
