A building has been damaged following a large skip fire in Norwich.

Appliances from Earlham and Sprowston attended Stevenson Road at just after 10pm on Friday (June 21) to extinguish a large skip next to The One80, a community initiative in the heart of the Larkman Estate, using fire using hose reel jets.

The fire also caused damage to an adjacent building's fascias and guttering.

Meanwhile firefighters from Carrow were called out to a sheltered housing complex at Warminger Court in Norwich at 7.20am this morning (Saturday, June 22) for an alarm activation.

But this was confirmed to be a false alarm caused by a fault on the system.
