Fire crews were called to a north Norfolk property this evening, after a member of the public spotted a candle was burning inside.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue were called around 10pm to Mount Street, in Cromer.

They sent two crews, who put the candle out through the window.

Elsewhere in the county, crews from Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and Loddon were called to a fire in the open in New Road, Fritton, at around 7.20pm. This was put out using backpack sprayers.

In Upwell, firefighters helped release a child who was locked in a bedroom.
