A neighbour, who did not wish to be named, said she heard an “explosion” and saw smoke billow from the driveway.

“I could smell plastic burning so I just left (my granddaughter) in the house, come out the gate and it went ka-bang. It went up in smoke.

She said it was a shocking event in a usually quiet and “loving” area.

Police are investigating.
