Stagecoach has launched an investigation after one of its vehicles caught fire while carrying passengers.

The fire broke out shortly after 20:00 BST on Thursday, between Drybrook and Mitcheldean in the Forest of Dean.

Two fire crews from Cinderford were called out and remained at the scene until almost midnight.

No-one was injured, but the bus was extensively damaged and four metres of the road required resurfacing.
