Firefighters from Gorleston were called to Church Road in Burgh Castle on Sunday night just after 10pm to reports of a car on fire.

On arrival, they found the car - which appears to be a Ford Mondeo estate - was ablaze.

They put out the flames in just over ten minutes.

The burnt out car is now sitting in the car park outside St Peter and St Paul Church.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said the police had not been informed, and there was no sign of deliberate ignition.
