Fire fighters were called to a car fire in Tadworth that was believed to have been caused by faulty electrics in the vehicle.

The fire, which started just before 12.30am, spread to a tree and fence while parked up in Fleetwood Close

Epsom crew manager Darren Howland said: “Two fire fighters in breathing apparatus used two hose reels to put it out.

“The driver had driven the car just a few hours before.”
