A London double decker bus has set on fire on Bishopsgate in the City Of London, according to images on social media.
TFL’s traffic news Twitter page shared a CCTV image of the new bus on fire on Bishopsgate, which runs from Shoreditch through rot London Bridge.
Other Twitter users posted images of the blaze, but said that it appears to be under control. It is unclear from the images whether it is a new route master, known commonly as a 'boris bus' or a Enviro 400, which is a hybrid bus.
