This was the scene after a burning car rolled down a slope towards a house in Saltash.

Firefighters say the car was alight and hit another vehicle before going into a brick wall, and missing the property.

It is believed that the car may have been stolen and set on fire deliberately.

Crews used hose reel jets to put the blaze out on Jubilee Close just before 3am on Wednesday morning.
