Rangers rescued the passengers from the car just before it burst into flames and, according to a spokesperson for Longleat, “The lions were cleared from the enclosure and the safari park was closed”.

No one was hurt.
(George Lear explained his ‘made my day’ Tweet, saying: “When I say it made my day, I mean it made my day a bit more exciting.”)
