Fire crews from Carrow and Earlham were called to extinguish the flames after the bus caught fire on the A1042 slip road at Postwick at just before 12.20pm today.

Firefighters used breathing apparatus, hose reels and a hydrant to tackle the blaze.

The slip road was closed for just over an hour and reopened at 1.30pm.

There were no passengers on the bus, which was travelling from the Great Yarmouth direction, and it is believed the fire was not started deliberately.
