A blazing van in a back garden caused alarm at Crowle yesterday morning.

The mid-morning incident on High Street involved a Ford transit diesel van.

The vehicle was well alight when a fire crew from Crowle arrived to put it out. A nearby fence and garden greenhouse also suffered damage, and thick smoke spread around the area.

No other properties were affected.

The fire occurred just before 11am and was contained in the rear garden. Investigations were ongoing.
