THIS charred heap of metal is all that remains of a red Reliant Robin after a car fire in March this morning.
The old vehicle burst into flames on the corner of Broad Street and Grays Lane, shortly before 11am.
The fire - thought to have been caused by a mechanical fault - completely destroyed the Reliant and also damaged another vehicle, which was parked next to it.
A fire service spokesman said: “One crew from March attended the incident and firefighters used two hose reels to extinguish the fire.
“The cause of the fire was accidental.”
Nobody was injured in the blaze.
