This Is Why The M50 Was Covered In Smoke This Morning
Did you notice the huge clouds of smoke?
For those of you who use the M50 to come in today, you'll be all too aware, but for those not in the know - a bus caught fire on the busy motorway this morning.
The blaze sent smoke across the sky near the M11 merge southbound on the hard shoulder just after 7am this morning.
