Jonathan Thomas on Worcester Warriors team coach fire

A former Wales rugby forward says he feels "lucky to be alive" after the Worcester team bus went up in flames on the M5 during a trip to play the Ospreys in Swansea.

Jonathan Thomas told Radio Wales' Nick Webb that the players first found out about the fire when a Worcester team director ordered them off the bus.

"We were lucky everyone was safe and sound," said Thomas.

The match kicked off late and Worcester lost narrowly 19-23.
