Emergency services were called to a garage in Yarmouth this afternoon after concerns were raised about the safety of a man.

Police went to the scene, on Raleigh Avenue, at around 2.55pm, and fire crews were called at 3.05pm due to a strong smell of petrol.

However there was no fire, and the crews - one from Gorleston and one from Great Yarmouth - stood down around 3.31pm.

A spokesperson from the fire service said there had been a leak or a spill, and there was no one inside the garage.
