Fire crews spent over one and a half hours tackling the fire after the Diamond Coaches vehicle went up in flames at the junction of Hendon way with the A41 at 2:30 am.

Paramedics treated the driver or smoke inhalation and shock at the scene.

Diamond Coaches has not been able to confirm if passengers were on the coach at the time but only the driver required medical attention.

Most of the coach was left damaged after the fire was brought under control shortly before 4am.
