A camp fire and a “humanitarian service” saw coastal firefighters called out overnight.

A fire crew from Gorleston were called to Ives Way, in Hopton, at 3.38am to provide a "humanitarian service", Norfolk Fire and Rescue service stated.

The Gorleston crew were called out again at 6.42am to reports of a small camp fire in Fritton.

Firefighters were joined by a crew from Great Yarmouth, and extinguished the fire with hand appliances.

Meanwhile, a Norfolk fire crew from Bungay were called to a fire on Old Railway Road, in Earsham at 9.41pm on Friday night.

This, however, was a false alarm as a result of controlled burning.
