Fire crews have been kept busy by a succession of three minor incidents.

At approximately 12.17pm yesterday (Friday, August 11), Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) were notified of a person trapped in a swimming pool on Coast Road in Corton.

However, having arrived on the scene, no action was required from SFRS and one male was left in the care of the East of England Ambulance Service.

A crew was also called to Horn Hill in Lowestoft at 2.48pm, after receiving a call saying a female had collapsed at Asda supermarket.

The attending crew administered first aid and the matter was passed on to the ambulance service.

Elsewhere, one vehicle from Lowestoft South fire station was called to Pier Terrace at approximately 2.58pm, following reports of a vehicle fire.

The blaze was extinguished by a single hose reel and the incident was under control by 3.04pm.

Investigations into the initial cause of the fire are ongoing.
