A car burst into flames after a two-car smash in Northowram this afternoon (Monday).

A Fiat Seicento car was in collision with a Honda HRV at the junction of Lidgate and Bradford Road, Northowram, at about 2pm.

Both drivers had got out of their cars before the Fiat then burst into flames.

No-one was injured.

One fire crew from Odsal attended the blaze.

Watch commander Andy Mason said: “It is unusual for cars to burst into flames in a collision nowadays but it is not unheard of.”
