THIS is the dramatic moment a car was engulfed in flames in Evesham.

The picture was taken by 15-year-old Harry Beevis following the blaze in Greenhill, Evesham, after 1.30pm on Saturday. He said: "The car was seen by me, my parents and other witnesses blazing with fire. I took the chance to take some pictures on my phone of the car engulfed with flames and with the fire fighters extinguishing it." A spokesman for Hereford and Worcester Fire Control said they had several calls about the fire at 1.37pm on Saturday. Two hose reels and two breathing apparatus were used by an Evesham crew.
