Pescara open-top bus catches fire!

Pescara’s promotion celebrations have been hit by a bizarre incident, as the open-top bus went up in flames!

Zdenek Zeman led the team to top the Serie B table and secure their promotion back into the top flight after a 20-year absence.

They were set to travel round the city streets in an open-topped bus to celebrate the achievement.

However, the vehicle they hired in Rome, painted with the Pescara logo, caught fire on the A24 motorway due to a short-circuit on its way to pick up the squad.

The driver was unhurt, although the bus was badly damaged in the accident.

Pescara have now hired another bus and the fans are joining in by decorating it in the club colours.

The promotion party is going ahead, but an hour behind schedule.
