A bus carrying 50 students from Limassol to Nicosia caught fire on the motorway early on Saturday but no one was injured.

The bus was travelling near Kofinou at 5.30am when the fire broke out at the rear end. The driver managed to park on the hard shoulder before the fire spread to other parts of the vehicle.

The blaze was put out by the fire service but the bus was destroyed.

The incident forced the closure of part of the motorway for over an hour.
