Reports that a property was on fire in Kirkley sparked a call-out.

Two crews from Lowestoft South fire station were alerted at 7.40pm on Tuesday, April 9 following reports that a building was ablaze on Edgerton Road, Lowestoft.

However on arrival at the scene, firefighters discovered that it was instead 'a fire in the garden,' which was quickly dealt with.

A Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: 'Combined fire control were initially called to a property on fire, but upon arrival on scene crews found this was actually a fire in the garden.

'Crews extinguished the fire.'
