A major road in Nottingham was closed to traffic after a car caught fire on it during rush hour.

Trent Bridge was closed while a fire crew from West Bridgford tackled the blaze, which destroyed a blue Peugeot.

Crews were called to the fire near the Riverbank pub at 08:40 GMT and both inbound lanes were shut.

The road has since reopened, a Nottinghamshire fire service spokesman said. The cause of the fire is not known.
