Pictured: Car catches fire on Belfast to Dublin road after driver forgets about blanket on engine

A car caught fire on Monday morning after the driver forgot about the blanket they had placed over the engine overnight.

Police and the fire service responded on the A1 after the car caught fire. Traffic was reduced to one lane as the emergency services worked to tackle the blaze.

The driver had placed a blanket over the engine after temperatures dropped to below freezing across Northern Ireland.

"Thankfully nobody was hurt although the driver was more than a little embarrassed for the trouble caused," said police.
