Firefighters were called out to a refuse container on fire in Norwich.

A crew from Carrow was called to the buring bin just off Castle Meadow at just before 4.50am this morning (Saturday, November 3).

Firefighters used hand appliances to extinguish the fire.

Meanwhile earlier in the night one appliance from Carrow attended an alarm sounding on Duke Street in Norwich.

The crew, which was called at about 1.10am, discovered this was a false alarm caused by an unknown fault in the system.
