Watch the shocking video of a vehicle which was carrying livestock, as it’s engulfed in flames near the Vaynol Estate in Bangor this morning, Saturday 5th May.

The 4×4 vehicle, with a trailer carrying livestock, had pulled into a lay-by near the entrance of the Vaynol Estate before it burst into flames. The quick thinking driver of the vehicle had managed to detach the trailer from the vehicle, moving it a safe distance away and saving the livestock from the fire.

North Wales Fire Service received a 999 call at 09.51hrs this morning and two appliances, one from Menai Bridge and another from Caernarfon, attended the scene quickly to extinguish the fire. The road was closed while emergency crews dealt with the fire.

The cause of the fire isn’t known.
