The centre of the Swedish capital Stockholm was in panic this morning after an explosion on a public bus. On various pictures posted on social media the bus can be seen caught in huge flames.
According to police no passengers were on the bus and the driver was able to escape unharmed. The flames were so quick to consume the vehicle that it was too late for firefighters to save it.
The explosion occurred around 11.30am local time in front of the Klara tunnel. Police assume one of the bus’s gas tanks exploded when the height markings for the tunnel were hit by the vehicle.
