Firefighters in Essex were called to a bungalow fire in Jaywick caused by an unattended candle on Friday night.

Two fire engines attended the blaze in Lavendar Walk at around 6.30pm. The fire was put out by 6.55pm.

A fire brigade spokesman said: “A thermal image camera was used to check for hot spots inside the bungalow, which measured 10 metres by five metres.

“Firefighters’ quick actions meant the fire was contained to one bedroom.”

There were no reported injuries.

The Orwell Bridge has reopened this morning after 80mph winds battered Suffolk and brought its closure.

Several schools in Suffolk are to remain closed or open later this morning amid high winds.

Across Suffolk, dozens of bands, singers, solo acts, choirs and orchestras ply their trade on evenings and weekends as part of the county’s eclectic night time economy.

High winds have led to rail service cancellations including on the mainline from Suffolk and Essex to London and local routes between Sudbury and Marks Tey.

High winds have brought down overhead power cables leaving homes in many Suffolk and Essex communities without electricity.

A well known west Suffolk pub has suddenly closed its doors after the district council received a licence review application from police, stating the premises was ‘associated with serious crimes and disorder’.
