Firefighters were called out four times across Waveney last night.

A crew from Beccles were called to Gosford Road at 7.40pm on Saturday, March 2 to a report of a bin fire.

Firefighters attended the scene and dampened down the fire.

The Lowestoft South crew were then called out three times between 9.30pm and 1am.

Firstly, firefighters attended The Avenue, in Kessingland, at 9.37pm until 9.57pm to a false alarm from a defective fire alarm.

The crew were then called to Normanston Drive, Lowestoft, at 11.15pm following a request from the East of England Ambulance Service to gain entry to a building.

The ambulance service again requested the assistance of the fire service at 0.11am today (Sunday, March 3), but the crew was stood down at 0.27am and returned to the station.
