18:25 01 April 2014


Firefighters have spent more than an hour fighting a blaze in a domestic garage in Bradwell, near Great Yarmouth.

Two crews, from Gorleston and Great Yarmouth, were called to the property on the A143 Beccles Road at 4.54pm.

A fire service spokesman said there were no casualties, and the incident was declared over at 6.07pm.

The road was closed to traffic, and local diversions were put in place.

  • It is good to know that the fire was put out with no casualties However I would just like to make a point of how dreadful the attitude of the driver of the First Bus No. 7 was. Having caught the bus from Great Yarmouth at 4.50pm returning from work, all the people on the bus who were travelling to Belton were thrown off the bus by the driver and told they would have to walk as she (the driver) could not gain access) and therefore not travel any further. With that, the people were left stranded whilst the driver did a three point turn and swiftly disappeared back down the Beccles Road. No one was allowed to walk any further up the road to get on to the New Road and there were people with young children. Well done First Bus on having such outstanding drivers - we salute you!
