Firefighters were called to two incidents where plant life was on fire in north Norfolk last night.

Crews from Cromer and Sheringham stations were first called to gorse bushes which were alight in Howards Hill West, in the west of Cromer.

The crews used hose reel jets to put out the fire after it was reported at 10.23pm on Sunday, June 2.

Later, at 1.07am, a crew from North Walsham fire station was called to put out a hedge fire on Bacton Road.

Temperatures dropped to around 10C overnight following what was the hottest weekend of the year so far, with parts of Norfolk recording highs of up to 29C.
