A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a car and a van that had been in collision, both of which had caught fire as a result.

“Thankfully, the occupants of all vehicles had managed to get themselves out, otherwise it could have been a very different outcome.

“A man and a woman from the car, together with two children, were all assessed and discharged at the scene with minor injuries, as was the man who was driving the van.”
