Ash Holt witnessed the incident, he said: “It brought the whole area to a stand still and was in heavy rain.

“The police car that turned up had someone in the back that they must have arrested.

“The fire engine turned up after about 10 mins and put the fire out in a couple of minutes. The car popped a few times very loudly and made a few on lookers scream.”
