A car which went up in flames on the busy A500 Nantwich bypass, sparked long traffic delays.

It happened at around 2.15pm yesterday (July 30).

Cheshire Fire Service crews from Nantwich were called out to the scene and used a hose reel jet to extinguish the blaze.

One firefighter wore breathing apparatus.

The crew made the scene safe before handing the incident over to the police.
