Clipped petrol pump sparks fire alert in West Runton

A camper van which clipped a petrol pump in north Norfolk this afternoon sparked a fire alert.

Firefighters from Cromer and Sheringham were called to Crowes Garage, Cromer Road, West Runton, shortly after 2.30pm.

A police spokesman said a passer-by had spotted the camper van drive on to the forecourt of the garage, which was closed.

A bike rack on the back of the vehicle had got caught on a pump hose. The passer-by alerted the driver who checked the pump and drove off.

Fire crews arrived to investigate but found no leaks or other damage to the pump.
