A dramatic picture shows a car on fire in Worcester last night.

Paul Robinson, a resident living near to the site of the fire, said: "Woke us up at 1am this morning and heard a couple of loud bangs.

"I looked out of the bedroom window and saw red smoke.

"I thought it was the old peoples home on fire so got dressed quickly and run around the corner onto Darwin Avenue and saw a red car in flames.

"Fire Engines turned up a minute later and started to put it out.

"A lot of residents were outside by that time then me and the wife went back to bed."

Crews from Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service confirmed they attended a car fire in a car park off of Darwin Avenue, Worcester.
