A car caught fire in a town centre.

Firefighters were called to Church Street in Dorchester last night.

A crew from Dorchester was sent to the scene after the alarm was raised just before 5.50pm.

A Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "We used one reel jet to dampen down hot spots and made sure it was all thoroughly extinguished.

"Crews helped relocate the car to a safer place."
