Six fire crews have helped put out a barn fire in Walpole Highway, near King's Lynn.

Appliances from King's Lynn North, King's Lynn South, Wisbech, Massingham and a water carrier with a support appliance from Fakenham went to tackle the blaze.

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said the fire was in a '20 metre by 20 metre' barn on Trinity Road.

Called at 4.30pm this afternoon, the crews using main and hose reel jets supplemented by a hydrant to control the fire.

They put out the blaze, but remained at the scene tonight damping down the area.
