A CAR burst into flames on the M62 only minutes after its new owner had bought it.
Firefighters from Brighouse were called to the blaze on the westbound carriageway between junctions 25 and 24 at 11.57am yesterday.
It is thought a female driver and her three passengers had just purchased the 56 plate Vauxhall Astra and were driving back to Preston when a fire started in the engine compartment. No- one was injured.
