Dramatic car fire in Driffield town centre
A dramatic car fire in Driffield saw fire crews rush to a town centre car park to tackle the blaze earlier today.

According to the car’s owner, Andy Stabler, smoke first began coming from the car’s dashboard as be began to drive away from the car park.
Mr Stabler pulled over, attempting to open the bonnet, before flames began pouring from the vehicle.

“I feel quite lucky that I wasn’t driving down a motorway or somewhere where I might not have been able to stop.”
