Watch: Raging inferno consumes double decker bus after shocking arson attack

This is the dramatic moment a double-decker bus was engulfed by flames during a shocking arson attack on a busy city street. Passengers were forced to flee after the top deck of the National Express West Midlands service was deliberately set alight in Handsworth, Birmingham. Several firefighters battled to extinguish the blaze on Soho Road- one of the city's busiest streets - at 7.20pm on Wednesday (24/5). Video footage obtained by Birmz Is Grime shows huge flames tearing through the vehicle as shocked witnesses watched on. The top deck was left gutted by the fire, which West Midlands Police confirmed was being treated as an arson attack on board the Number 74 service.(Video - SWNS)
