FIREFIGHTERS battled a car on fire that was being towed by a motorhome.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service say they were called out at 11.12am yesterday (May 31) to the A165 in Filey to reports of a car on fire.

A crew from Filey and one from Scarborough attended and found the car was being towed by a camperhome.

A spokesman for the service said: "The fire caused extensive damage to the car, and the cause is believed to be electrical.

"Crews used a hose reel, breathing apparatus and thermal imaging camera to put the fire out and carry out their work."
