Hairdryer disaster caught on camera

Staff writer

A young woman's YouTube tutorial goes disastrously wrong when her hairdryer bursts into flames.

The Londoner, who shared her video in Twitter under the handle @Rhondz2, was recording herself styling a wig when the hairdryer suddenly cuts out.

An explosion follows, before she becomes engulfed in smoke as she frantically calls for a friend.

She escapes unhurt, although a little shaken by her ordeal.
