Fire service attends two gas related incidents in Suffolk
Firefighters were called to two separate blazes involving gas at homes in Suffolk today.

Four fire crews were sent to the scene: one each from Colchester, Ipswich East, Holbrook and Felixstowe.
A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said the fire had been caused by gas bottles in the garage.
The garage was “fully alight” when crews arrived, the spokesman said.
