Transdev have re-assured travellers that there was not a fire on a 36 Bus on Thursday, 13 July 2017.
The vehicle had a mechanical problem that caused it to produce a large volume of smoke, near to their depot in Starbeck.
A spokesperson for Transdev said:
The vehicle had just left the depot to start the day’s duties when it developed a mechanical fault. The engine did not catch fire and the vehicle was quickly recovered. Nobody was hurt, and the bus is now with the manufacturer to investigate the cause of the incident.
