Have your say

Firefighters from Bolsover were called to a blazing bus on the northbound carriageway of the M1 today (Sunday, 25th August).

The 49-seat coach had set alight due to faults with the rear axle close to Junction 30 of the motorway, a fire service spokesman said.

The incident happened at around 5.48pm and firefighters used one hose reel to extinguish the flames.

It is not believed that anyone was injured in the incident.
