This is the dramatic moment firefighters doused a car with water after it burst into flames beneath a railway archway in Manchester city centre.

A crew from Salford station rushed to Kelso Place, in Castlefield, at around 8.24pm this evening (March 25).

Footage filmed by a neighbour living in a flat close to the scene shows firefighters working to quell the flames and bring the fire under control.
