Bus fire sparks emergency call-out

All three passengers unhurt

A quick-thinking driver was forced to stop his bus after it caught fire on Saturday.

It was serving the route number 21 in Farmhill when a loud noise was heard at the back of the vehicle before thick smoke quickly appeared on the outside.

All three passengers on board were safely escorted off and waited at the side of the road until a replacement bus arrived.

No-one was hurt.

Fire crews inspected the vehicle.
