Emergency services beat back a blaze in a field at Shipdham, near Dereham, after farm machinery caught fire this afternoon.

Four pumps, from Dereham, Wymondham and Holt, were needed to tackle the flames when a baler and harvester caught alight in a field off Letton Road.

A patch of uncut straw also required being put out by firemen.

Police attended the scene to help make the area safe and were also required to control traffic due to smoke over the road.

The fire service received a call at 12.23pm and had put out the fire by 1.41pm.
