A swimmer had to cut short his time in the pool when his car caught fire at a leisure centre.
Fire fighters were called to the scene when the silver Ford Focus burst into flames while parked at the Victory Swim and Fitness Centre in North Walsham.
Retired Anglia TV engineer Tim Dye saw the drama unfold just before midday on Tuesday.
Mr Dye, 64, who filmed the episode on his phone camera, said: 'I had arrived at the swimming pool and just as the car burst into fire and there were some big flames coming out of the bonnet.
'People who were parked nearby were concerned the fire could spread or the car explode.
