Saab spontaneously explodes in Leeds

A Saab Convertable yesterday caught fire whilst being driven and exploded within seconds of the driver escaping without injury.

Mrs A Gregory was driving to the White Rose Centre in Leeds yesterday morning when her Saab 9.3 tSE convertable when she smelt burning. As she approached the shopping centre, she looked down to her left and noticed a spark coming from around the cigarette lighter. 

Thinking remarkably quickly, Mrs Gregory decided to abandon the car away from other parked cars on a double yellow line. She quickly jumped out of the car and realised that the engine was still running. Bravely, she reached in and switched off the ignition and retreated to a safe distance. 

The car then set alight and was destroyed within seconds.
