DELAYS were caused at a busy junction in Worcester this morning after a car caught fire.

Firefighters were called to what was believed to be an engine fire at Whittington roundabout at about 7.10am this morning.

The front end of the diesel car was severely damaged in the fire which was extinguished using two hose reels and two breathing apparatus.

Police were on hand managing traffic but tailbacks were being caused by traffic coming off the M5 northbound.

No one is believed to have been hurt.
