Firefighters from Gorleston were called to Kitchener Road in Great Yarmouth just before 12.30pm on Thursday to reports that thick black smoke could be seen billowing from the grave yard.

Police were called shortly afterwards to assist.

It is not believed anyone was inside the tent at the time and the fire was extinguished after around 10 minutes.

Hose Reel Jets were used to extinguish the fire.
