Firefighters spent more than 20 minutes extinguishing a vehicle blaze in Gorleston, which happened on Saturday evening.

At around 9pm, firefighters were called to Riverside Road in the town, to reports of two vehicles which were on fire.

Two fire crews, one from Gorleston Fire Station and one from Great Yarmouth Fire Station, attended the scene and were required to use breathing apparatus while they tackled the blaze.

Eight firefighters took part in the operation, which saw the teams extinguish the fire in just over 20 minutes, using hose reel jets to put out the fire.

No people were required to be rescued from either of the vehicles and no injuries were suffered as a result of the blaze.
