Fears have been raised over electric car safety after 5 fire engines and 35 firefighters struggled for 2 hours to control the blaze from a Telsa Model S which had crashed.

The company publishes “emergency response guides” to help firefighters who are advised to wear respiratory equipment due to the toxic fumes emitted.
