Fire fighters are battling a large blaze at Bawsey near Kings Lynn.

Norfolk fire and rescue service said seven appliances were on the scene where a large quantity of refuse was on fire.

It was not clear what had started the fire.

A spokesperson said six pumping appliances had been dispatched from Kings Lynn North, Heacham, Terrington, West Walton and Hunstanton while a water carrier from Fakenham was also sent to the “large incident on Gayton Road in Bawsey”.

“Locals are recommended to shut all windows and doors.”

In another incident, an appliance from Kings Lynn attended a grass fire on River Walk.

Hand appliances were used to extinguish the fire, which had been deliberately ignited.
