A BMW was “totalled” after its engine caught fire on Sunday night.

Firefighters rushed to the scene in Red Lion Lane - opposite the The Red Lion pub in Leighton Buzzard Road, Water End - at about 9pm.

They put the fire out - but crew commander John Wilding said the car had been “totalled” by the blaze.

He said: “I would think an electrical problem caused the fire.”
