Firefighters tackled a blaze in forestry at Fritton, which is believed to have been started deliberately.

A crew from Great Yarmouth fire station and a second crew from Gorleston fire station were called out about 5.56pm last night (Saturday).

The two crews attended following “reports of a fire in the forestry on New Road in Fritton.”

On arrival at the scene, the fire crews used “hand appliances and back pack sprayers” to put out the flames.

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said: “This was a deliberate ignition.”
