Firefighters in Great Yarmouth had a busy night, with multiple call outs to different parts of the town.

Fire crews were called to Bradwell, in Great Yarmouth, last night to reports of a straw stack fire.

Crews from Great Yarmouth and Gorleston were sent to the blaze, on Doles Lane, at around 9.26pm yesterday where they used hose reel jets to tackle the fire.

They also had the use of a teleporter, similar to a forklift, to break up the stack.

They then allowed the stack to burn.

Firefighters were again called out in Great Yarmouth to a vehicle fire on North Drive, which a Norfok Fire and Rescue spokesman said was actually on the dunes.

They used hand appliances to put the fire out.
