Firefighters were called out after a van was on fire on a bridge near Ladybower Reservoir last Sunday evening.

Glossop Blue Watch attended at around 8:10pm and put the fire out using breathing apparatus and a hose reel jet but the Transit van was completely destroyed.

Around 50 minutes later, a passing car clipped a kerb when pulling over to look at the incident.

A rear side wheel was damaged but no-one was injured.

Firefighters helped make the car safe and awaited the arrival of a recovery vehicle.
