Firefighters worked hard in very windy weather conditions to get the fire under control and stop it spreading to any more of the seaside chalets at Frinton-on-Sea.

Three crews - from Frinton, Weeley, and Clacton - were called to the incident on the Esplanade just before 2pm.

The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.
