Bride’s car bursts into flames in West Haddon

A BRIDE had a lucky escape when the 1935 Rolls Royce Phantom she was travelling in to the church caught fire.

A crew from Guilsborough were called to Crown Street in West Haddon to find the car severely damaged by fire at around 12.30pm on Saturday, after an electrical fault sparked a blaze.

The bride managed to use another car to get to the church just about on time.
