Firefighters were called to an incident in Colchester just after 2am last night.

Two crews were sent to Maidenburgh Street where there was a fire in a ground floor flat.

Firefighters wore breathing apparatus and used a single hosereel to put out the fire by 2.30am.

They then used a high-pressure fan to clear the flat of smoke.
