Another London bus has caught on fire just days after two others burst into flames.

The vehicle can be seen engulfed in flames inside a bus garage in Putney yesterday morning.

The fire has since been extinguished and staff were safely evacuated from the building.

The bus is operated by Go Ahead London, who have opened an investigation into what caused the blaze.

They said they will check all 380 of their buses to ensure safety.

It comes after two other buses burst into flames two weeks ago.

One was completely destroyed by the blaze after exploding in North Woolwich, east London.

No one was hurt or injured in the blaze and the bus was not carrying any passengers.

Another also caught fire in Wimbledon during rush hour.
