The single-decker vehicle was pictured with huge flames and smoke pouring from the roof at around 3:45pm in Shepherdswell, near Dover, Kent, yesterday. It was reported the blaze was started by schoolchildren who set hair spray or hand sanitiser on fire. Pictures from the scene show the bus at a standstill while flames douse the turquoise vehicle along a quiet residential street. One person described the bus driver as a 'legend', while another described him as the 'hero of the day.' It is not clear which school the pupils are from, or if police are investigating the incident.
