'BUSH fires' have been spotted between Oxford and Wallingford. 

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service is attending what it described as 'fires on road verges' near Berinsfield.

Video footage shows a number of small, smouldering fires on the side of the A4074, between Nuneham Courtenay and Wallingford. 

One driver explained: "When I turned back around to call the fire services you could hear that the fire was catching on quite heavily."

The footage was filmed at around 2.30pm. 

The driver added that they thought a vehicle that appeared to be smoking may have played a part in starting the fire.

There have also been reports on similar fires on the A34. 

Oxfordshire County Council Fire and Rescue Service spokesman Chris Dyson said there were "few details at the moment", but added: "We are attending this fire.

"Fires on the road verges could be because of the hot weather."

He added that a call came in at 2:20pm and that four appliances are attending 'fires in field'. They are from Abingdon, Oxford, Wallingford, Wheatley.
