Several firefighters were called to a residential building fire in Great Yarmouth overnight.

Crews from Great Yarmouth, Acle and Sprowston were called to the blaze at a property in Townshend Road in the town just before 1.15am today (Saturday, July 17).

Firefighters wore breathing apparatus while using hose reel jets to extinguish the fire.

A thermal imaging camera was also used to check for hot spots and a fan was used to clear smoke from the premises.

Meanwhile shortly before 6am today, at 5.48am, firefighters from King's Lynn North helped a deer which had got stuck in railings in a gate at South Wootton.

They manually assisted the animal to help release it.
