This is the terrifying moment fire crews battled with a London bus which was engulfed in crippling flames.
The fire, which began at around 9:50 this morning, was eventually stopped but not before half of the vehicle had already been destroyed, reports The Independent.

It is not known if passengers were on board when the fire started on Liverpool Street, but fortunately no casualties have been reported thus far.
Witnesses from the Sushisamba skyscraper restaurant just across the road claim that the bus mysteriously burst into flames spontaneously, and videos posted onto social media show just how terrifying the blaze really was.
