A car burst into flames on a busy High Wycombe A-road during rush hour this morning.

The dark car - which appears to be a taxi - caught fire outside the Pheasant pub on London Road, approaching the Gordon Road roundabout.

According to eyewitnesses, the blaze happened at around 8.40am - while the road was busy with commuters and those on the school run.

Firefighters managed to bring the fire under control but the blaze did cause delays for drivers.
