"The flames were just shooting out of the engine and coming past the tires", witness Sue Wright told BBC News. It looked like a ball of fire on the front of the vehicle and it was producing a lot of smoke.

'I believe a sprinkler system would certainly have suppressed the fire, ' he added.

Clarke said the first sign of the fire was smoke.

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson tweeted that everyone was safe and no animals had been hurt. Liverpool City Council opened a reception centre for those unable to get home. Some people took advantage of lifts by fellow show-goers or locals while others were offered accommodation.
