SEVERAL vehicles, including a bus and three trucks, burst into flames in an accidental fire at a racetrack.
East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service (ESFRS) attended the fire at Plumpton Racecourse just before midnight on Sunday 14 August.
Two cars, a bus, three lorries and a van were ablaze when three fire engines from Brighton, Barcombe and Lewes arrived.
