Reader David Martin (David Martin, Hebden Bridge) sent in this dramatic picture of a burnt out coach in Hebden Bridge.

Twenty passengers had to be evacuated when the coach caught fire on Keighley Road at 10.21am on Saturday.

The passengers were already evacuated by the time fire crews, attending from Todmorden, Mytholmroyd and Halifax, got to the scene and there were no reports of any injuries.

Four pumps were used to tackle the blaze which firefighters say affected 80 per cent of the vehicle.

Four breathing apparatus and two hose reels were also used.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
