A SHED was reduced to ashes at the weekend following a fire in a garden at a home in Great Yarmouth.

The shed blaze broke out in the back garden of a property on South Market Road in the early hours on Sunday and was luckily spotted by a neighbour who raised the alarm.

Clive Jenner, 38, was playing computer games shortly before 6.30am when he heard a loud crackling sound coming from outside.

He said: “I popped out into my garden only to find half of my neighbour's shed was ablaze. I ran indoors and called the fire brigade, then made 10 trips out with buckets of water and threw it over my shed which was starting to catch fire.”
