Firefighters in Acomb were called out to contrasting incidents during the evening shift yesterday.

At 5.32pm crews responded to a microwave fire at a residential property. The fire was out when firefighters arrived, who then carried out an inspection of the home.

And at 6.23pm, crews helped police to gain access to a roof void ‘for policing activities’.

They used a triple extension ladder and thermal imaging camera.
