More than 20 firefighters have been tackling a blaze at a breakers yard in Norfolk this morning.

Crews were called just before 9am today to Hall Road in Hainford, between Norwich and Aylsham.

A fire service spokesman said they were called to a commercial property – found to be a breakers yard – where they spent just over two hours getting the blaze under control.

Three appliances from Sprowston, Earlier and Aylsham attended with a water carrier and a further support vehicle from Hethersett.
