Significant car fire caused by 'defect'

Creg Ny Baa back road now open - no injuries

Significant fire and damage to a vehicle brought the Creg Ny Baa back road to a standstill earlier.

Police say a Citroën car defect caused it to become engulfed in flames just after 5:30pm from the junction with Begoade Road and Lonan Church Road.

Fire officers arrived on scene after the road was temporarily closed and the fire was put out.

It's now been re-opened.  

There were no injuries, and police say there's nothing 'sinister to report'.
