Leeds people about to leave work might like to know that there is a bus ON FIRE on the Otley Rd. So may be some transport troubles tonight!

Cor, that is pretty impressive! Who sets fire to them? Or do they spontaneously combust?

Thanks for this. I read it out to the office at about 17:15. One response was "ooh, shall we take marshmallows?"

It was quite exciting. As I passed, the bus-driver was herding all the passengers off the bus and getting them to run away in case it exploded. And there were certainly real, proper flames visible in the engine compartment at the back. Do you actually travel home that way? I'd be curious to know what happened later on.

No, I head out East on the A64. Nobody I work with saw anything exciting :-(

I thought I'd seen it all with buses on Otley Road during my time at Leeds, but I never saw one on fire! Good heavens!

Yes, it was attracting quite a crowd, I can tell you! Very bad timing, though, just as the rush hour was starting. There was loads of smoke pouring out of it, and a lot of traffic crawling very cautiously by. I've tried looking at local news sites today to find out what happened in the end, but no joy, so I guess it probably went out pretty soon after I passed and was never spectacular enough to attract the attention of news crews.
