A CAR burst into flames at a shopping centre.

Fire crews went to the Holmbush Centre in Shoreham after the vehicle caught fire on Saturday at about 11am (July 24).

Shoppers watched on as fire crews tackled the blaze, which left one car 60 per cent damaged and two others 20 per cent damaged.

A spokeswoman for West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said crews from Worthing and Shoreham used breathing gear, hoses and extinguishers to put it out in a near-two-hour job.
