Driver flees burning bus as it suddenly bursts into flames

A driver fled his burning bus after it suddenly burst into flames.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing the driver run from the vehicle as smoke poured from the burning single decker before it exploded.

The number 162 caught fire on a quiet street in Bromley, south London.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Student Alfie Lewis said:

I just noticed the smoke and saw the driver running as I think most of the road expected it to explode.

People just gathered outside, called the police and fire brigade of course, but I'm not sure how it caught on fire.

Police say there were no injuries.
