Firefighters had to be called after a combine harvester broke out in flames in north Norfolk.

Four appliances from Fakenham, Sandringham, Heacham, and King's Lynn were called to Creak Road, in Syderstone, near Fakenham, at 3.34pm on Friday, August 30.

Crews used a compressed air foam system, jets, a hydrant, and back pack sprayers to put out the fire.

They also used thermal image cameras to check for hots spots, as well as ladders.
