Two fire appliances from Taunton were sent to a report of a vehicle on fire on the M5 Southbound between Junctions 25 and 26 at 11:12 this morning (Friday).

On arrival, crews confirmed a fire in the engine of the car which had pulled over onto the hard shoulder.

To extinguish the fire crews used two hose reel jets, a hydraulic spreader and breathing apparatus.
