Bus Bursts Out In Flames in Southwest London

A double decker bus has burst into flames in the southwest London borough of Kingston upon Thames.

The rear of the bus, which was operating the 371 service, set alight at around 9am this morning near Guildhall, in a bright orange fireball.

Pictures of the fire were shared on social media.

There are no reported injuries from the fire, though London Ambulance staff are at the scene treating people for smoke inhalation.

The London Fire Brigade said the fire was under control just after 10am, but the cause of the fire is still unknown.

Nearby homes and businesses have been evacuated as a precaution and roads around the area have been cordoned off. Motorists have been advised to avoid the area.

TfL have launched a full investigation into the incident.
