Fire crews spent more than half an hour at the scene of a barn blaze in west Norfolk.

Two crews were called to a farm in Ploughman's Drove in Feltwell after a fire broke out in a barn. 

A spokesperson for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said: "A call came through at 9.21am this morning. Two appliances from Methwold attended but the fire was extinguished prior to arrival."

After the fire was extinguished a thermal camera was used to scan for hotspots.

There were no reports of any injuries. 

It comes after a large blaze broke out at a farm between Walpole Cross Keys and Terrington St Clement which was still burning more than 24 hours after it first started.

A tall stack of hay bales caught fire and led to the fire service advising nearby residents to close doors and windows.
