A bus driver was left with breathing problems after a double decker caught fire in Wiltshire. It happened in the High Street in Marlborough just after 8.30am.

The driver tried to tackle the flames before crews arrived and was treated by paramedics because he breathed in smoke.

The High Street was closed for a number of hours while diesel that had leaked from the bus was cleared up.
