Fire and police officers are investigating the cause of a van blaze in the early hours of the morning.

Crews from Atherton and Leigh were called to Newhaven Avenue, off Leigh Road, in Leigh, at 4am on Saturday after a transit van was in flames.

The vehicle, which was completely destroyed, was parked close to a garage, which was also affected by the blaze.

Firefighters used a hose reel and breathing apparatus to extinguish the flames.

Police were informed, as a spokesman for the fire service said he was uncertain of the cause.

No-one was injured,
