A RANGE Rover car parked on the drive of an Oldham bungalow has been destroyed by fire.

A crew from Chadderton fire station was called to Parklands Road, Royton at about midnight last night when the vehicle caught fire.

Firefighters needed breathing apparatus to deal with the blaze because of toxic fumes released by burning material on the car.

It is understood the cause of the fire was an electrical fault.

The eight-year-old car was a write off.
