Firefighters were called to tackle a second car fire in as many days, on Thursday night.

A VW Golf went up in flames on Paddock Road, at around 9pm.

Photos taken at the scene show the car engulfed in fire before firefighters worked hard to extinguish it.

Julie Day said: "Car on fire, off Paddock Road in South Ham tonight. [It was] well-alight before fire brigade got here. Firemen hosed down the remains to make safe."
