Derek Higgs was driving along Chase Cross Road in Collier Row, when he saw a silver car go up in flames.

“I came around the corner and had to quickly turn into the bus lane because a car was blazing. The tyres started to explode so I couldn’t get too close,” he said.

The London Fire Brigade were called at 1pm today (Tuesday) and they put down the fire.

There were no injuries.
