VIDEO: Reliant Robin reduced to charred heap of metal in March car fire

THIS charred heap of metal is all that remains of a red Reliant Robin after a car fire in March this morning.

The old vehicle burst into flames on the corner of Broad Street and Grays Lane, shortly before 11am.

The fire - thought to have been caused by a mechanical fault - completely destroyed the Reliant and also damaged another vehicle, which was parked next to it.

A fire service spokesman said: “One crew from March attended the incident and firefighters used two hose reels to extinguish the fire.

“The cause of the fire was accidental.”
