Firefighters tackled a blaze that swept through sheds and caravans that broke out in the early hours near a South Norfolk village.

Two crews from Diss were called to Heywood Road at Winfarthing at shortly before 2.30am on Tuesday, September 10.

Sheds, caravans and hedges were on fire at a property on the rural road which runs through countryside close to the village.

The crews used main jets, hose reel jets and thermal image cameras to extinguish the blaze.
