FIREFIGHTERS were called to a blaze on the M5 last night.

Two crews from Bridgwater attended the incident, between junctions 24 and 23, at just after 8pm after receiving several calls about a vehicle on fire.

A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue spokesperson said the callout involved a car with a fire in the engine compartment.

There was 60% fire damage to the vehicle, they added, and the cause of the fire was accidental.
