"I tried to open the door but it was still locked on the inside. I was screaming to people for a fire extinguisher. The car was basically on fire all inside the car."

Mr Bryan said a woman was also trying to help.

He said around 30 minutes later emergency services turned up.

"I got away then because I thought it was going to blow," he added.

"It was just traumatic. People didn't really rush over, some people got their phones out. It was me and some lady but the lady didn't come by the car. It's a shock."

Another man said he saw the car coming into the park which he thought was 'unusual'.

He said: "The park is not really intended for vehicles. He pulled to a halt. In fact, I walked in front of him. I carried on walking across to the library where I was heading, then there was a small explosion. I saw the car was on fire.
