Flames and smoke could be seen from the nearby Waxham Sands Holiday Park.

Firefighters used hoses and hand appliances to extinguish the fire by 10.30pm.

It came after a blaze in a field at Hoveton caused Wroxham Barns to close on the same day and 18 crews tackled a fire at Burgate on the Norfolk and Suffolk border with thick black smoke billowing into the air.
