Firefighters helped to free a dog that had got stuck in brambles.

A fire crew from Great Yarmouth were called out at 4.23pm this afternoon (Sunday) to assist the pet dog after it had got into difficulties.

A brigade spokesman said: “A crew from Great Yarmouth manually rescued a dog from brambles on Mill Road.”

The Great Yarmouth crews had been kept busy with two earlier call-outs. At 1.07pm Great Yarmouth firefighters were mobilised following reports of a fire on South Beach Parade.

However, this turned out to be a false alarm, which was caused by controlled burning.

Earlier on Sunday morning, a fire crew from Great Yarmouth and a second crew from Gorleston fire station were called to North Quay, in Yarmouth at 7.26am, following a crash.

A brigade spokesman said: “Crews made the vehicles and scene safe using granules.”
