Family's choice between burning car and Longleat lions
A woman has been describing the moment when her car caught fire - in the middle of the lion enclosure at Longleat Safari Park.
Rangers managed to rescue Helen Clements, her 12-year-old daughter and son, 9, from the vehicle before it was engulfed in flames.
She told BBC News, "Luckily we couldn't see the lions... It is unbelievable - I think if it was near the flamingos we wouldn't have had the problem".
Another visitor, Natalie Wiltshire, filmed this video soon after the rescue.
