Firefighters attended a 999 call which saw them put out a "well alight" car in a car park near Royal Preston Hospital.

The call was received at 9am by a member of the public after a Ford Galaxy's engine burst into flames on Sharoe Green Lane in Fulwood.

One fire engine attended the blaze and firefighters used breathing apparatus and a hose reel to put out the fire.

There were no injuries and the fire is being treated as an engine fault rather than anything suspicious according to Lancashire Fire Service.
