A shuttle bus carrying passengers from Stockholm to Skavsta Airport was gutted by fire in the early hours of Christmas Eve morning.

There have been no reports of any injuries. All 60 passengers and their luggage were quickly transferred to a replacement bus.

The fire broke out on the E4 motorway at around 5.30 am at Moraberg on the outskirts of Södertälje. The cause of the fire is not known.

The E4 motorway was partially closed as emergency services tried to put out the blaze.
