Drone footage has captured the moment firefighters tackled a huge boat blaze on the Norfolk Broads. 

Crews were called to the blaze in Hoveton at about 3.15pm on Saturday. 

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service were asking people living nearby to keep windows and doors shut and to stay away from the smoke plume. 

A drone video caught the moment firefighters tackled the blaze.

An eyewitness reported that crews were struggling to get the incident under control as fuel on the boat increased the strength of the burning.

The fire was extinguished at 6.15pm.
