London bus catches on fire in the middle of Kingston High Street

A London bus caught on fire on Friday morning causing Kingston High Street to shut down so the fire service could deal with the blaze.

The 371 bus from Kingston to Richmond came to a stop just metres from Kingston town hall then suddenly burst into flames.

The bus driver had already evacuated all passengers and himself ensuring that no one was harmed.

Elsa Breta, who works in the salon next to where the bus had stopped described it as being “like a movie scene”.

Transport for London said: “We won’t know the cause of the fire until the investigation is complete.”
