FIREFIGHTERS have extinguished a 4x4 which was on fire between junctions one and two on the M50.

The vehicle was towing a caravan along the westbound carriageway between Ledbury and Malvern when it caught fire at around 11am this morning.

When crews from Herefordshire and Worcestershire Fire and Rescue Service arrived, the vehicle had been detached from the caravan to avoid any damage to it.

It was not known what caused the fire.
