A video has captured the moment a bus was engulfed in flames as it passed through East Sheen.

Just after 7pm last night (July 23), police and fire crews were called to Upper Richmond Road after the double-decker bus caught fire.

Road closures were subsequently put in place (which have now been lifted) as emergency services dealt with not only the blaze, but a diesel spill as well.
