Firefighters had to go twice to put out a fire in a derelict property next to one of Norfolk's busiest roads.

Crews were initially called to the Old Post Office near the Canary and Linnet pub alongside the A47 at Fransham, near Dereham, at about 3pm on Saturday.

They quickly brought the fire under control but firefighters had to return to the scene at about 9pm as the fire was smouldering.

Meanwhile, a Dereham crew put out a fire on a fence and rubbish at Cartledge Close on the Moorgate estate at about 12.30pm on Saturday.
