A Swansea trawlerman is suing Vauxhall after claiming that he and his three year old daughter were left trapped in one of the brand's vehicles – as it went up in flames.

Jason Williams, 41, owned a Vauxhall Zafira – a model with a well-documented fire risk. The company was forced to recall 235,000 models of the second-generation Zafira, after over 200 cases of spontaneous combustion were reported.
