Firefighters tackled a van fire outside the Kassam Stadium this morning, as video footage shows the vehicle ablaze. 

The van was on fire at around 6:30am outside the stadium while a weekly car boot sale was taking place. 

A fire engine was on the scene at 6:42am and the crew put the fire out using water.

Video footage taken by a member of the public shows the van engulfed in flames with a huge cloud of smoke rising from the vehicle. 

People can be seen looking on at the fire as the blue lights of the fire engine flash in the distance. 

The van is believed to still be at the stadium in a 'badly burnt' condition outside the main entrance.
