Fire crews from Great Yarmouth quickly responded to a series of call-outs

A crew from Great Yarmouth fire station were alerted following reports of a bin on fire at Market Gates in the town last night (Friday).

They were called out at 10.29pm and discovered a bin ablaze, with the crew soon putting out the flames.

At 9.17pm last night a crew from Great Yarmouth were pressed into action following reports of a fire in Tennyson Road, however this turned out to be a false alarm.

And at 6.43pm last night a crew from Great Yarmouth were called out to assist Anglia Water with an incident in the town.
