Firefighters are still at the scene of a severe boat fire at Coltishall this afternoon.

Crews from Sprowston and Earlham were called to a 21-foot (6.4m) Freeman cruiser 'well alight' at a Norfolk Meads Hotel mooring in the village at about 2.30pm.

Fuel was said to be leaking from the boat and both the Environment Agency and Sprowston's environmental protection unit were still at the scene at 5pm.

The boat, Evandro, belongs to a local man, according to a Broads Authority spokesman. There were no reports of any injuries.
