Bus burned out in Knypersley

A Knypersley road had to be closed this week after a bus caught fire.
Drivers were prevented from travelling down Tunstall Road after the number 94 D&G bus, which runs from Congleton to Newcastle-under-Lyme, went up in flames on Tuesday morning.
The blaze began at around 8.15am, just north of Knypersley Sports Club, and the road was closed shortly afterwards so fire crews from Biddulph and Hanley could clean up the resulting debris.
D&G has since confirmed that the bus was in service at the time, but no passengers were on board. It is now investigating to find out what happened.
