The top deck of the bus erupted into a fireball in Loampit Vale, yards from Lewisham station, shortly after 6pm.

Student Nicholas Vassiliades, 21, who was passing, told the Standard he saw a woman “screaming and running away” as the flames took hold.

He added: “There was a little bit of smoke coming out of the back of the bus, then all of a sudden it started to escalate, until the fire engulfed pretty much the whole back of the bus.
