A SMART car burst into flames in Bicester this morning.

Traffic is delayed towards the town centre in Queens Avenue as a result of the blaze.

Firefighters have attended the fire and it has now been put out.

Chris Morgan - owner of the car - said: "We had driven up from Bristol this morning - as we came over the roundabout a lady behind us flashed her lights lots and lots - and as we pulled up she said there were flames.

"One of the gents came out with fire extinguishers but didn't seem to do anything - we jumped out as its full of fuel obviously."

The road has now been re-opened by police and traffic is starting to move normally again.

Firefighters worked to move the car off the road until it could be recovered.
