Three fire crews were required to put out a large crop fire in Dunton, near Fakenham, this afternoon.

The fire service was first called to the scene at 12:58 and didn’t leave until an hour after they arrived.

Crews from Fakenham, Wells and Massingham used hose reel jets to safely extinguish the blaze, which was just one of a number of crop fires in Norfolk in recent days.

No one was injured as a result of the fire.
