This is the terrifying moment a caravan suddenly explodes on a quiet residential street in north London.
Astonishing footage shows a woman scream and collapse to the ground in tears as car alarms blare and the portable home is engulfed by flames on Selborne road, Wood Green.
The recorder had been walking down the road carrying shopping just before midday on Wednesday last week when it happened.
No injuries were reported but a mother who lives nearby said the caravan had been there 'for weeks' and looked as though someone lived in it.
