29 Nov 2018


Kent firefighters were called to hose down a Mercedes Vito taxi that caught fire in Longfield, Kent this morning after it went up in flames at around 9:15am.

Crews were called to the incident which was seen by local residents at the junction of Fawkham Road.

The front end of the taxi was engulfed with flames which were seen by train driver Jeremy Clitheroe, who told KentOnline, he watched as firefighters sprayed the vehicle with water, creating a huge cloud of smoke which covered the road completely.

There was no reported injuries and a spokesperson for the fire services said they have not yet established the cause of the fire.
