A mum got a shock when she opened her front door only moments after driving her children home and saw her car ablaze.

Firefighters from Langley hurried to the site at the junction of Berryfield and Quinbrookes on the Wexham estate at 10.15pm last night and doused the flames.

A spokesman said the fire appeared to have been caused by an electrical fault.

He said: "The mother was upset because she had been in the car with her children moments earlier but she would have had plenty of warning."
