TWO men ran from their van seconds before it went up in flames.

The pair were near the Temeside Inn in Little Hereford when they smelt fumes.

They managed to pull over before the van caught fire last Friday morning.

And, despite the quick arrival of fire fighters, the vehicles was completely burnt out just minutes later.

Alice Roberts was driving behind the van and stopped to offer the men help.

She said she was disappointed that some drivers carried on their journeys and passed the vehicle as it burned but said other motorists were patient and happy to follow different routes.

She also praised the efforts of the fire service and Leominster police officers for their professional response.

The two men did not suffer any injuries.
