Bus evacuated after motorway fire

A bus was evacuated after the engine caught fire near Lockerbie. The bus was travelling north on the A74(M) in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The driver pulled onto the hard shoulder at junction 20 after seeing smoke rising from the engine compartment.

The fire service says passengers left the bus as a precaution, until the fire was put out. They were then picked up by a replacement bus to continue their journey north.
