Fire crews in Watford were called to a "massive car fire" at a busy petrol station this afternoon.

Firefighters from Watford’s Red Watch attended the blaze on the forecourt of the Tesco petrol station in Lower High Street.

The fire was extinguished from a grey Peugeot at just gone 1pm.

Two breathing apparatus and two hose reels were needed to put the fire out, which is believed to have been accidental.

The Red Watch Twitter account commented: "Just returned from a massive car fire on Tesco garage forecourt. Efficiently stopped in its tracks with no casualties".
