Emergency services were called to a building fire in Banham on Wednesday afternoon.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Services sent five pumps from Attleborough, Thetford, Long Stratton, Hingham and Diss at around 4pm, and were assisted by police and ambulance services on Haugh Road in Banham.

Crews wore breathing apparatus and used hose reel jets to extinguish the fire while a positive pressure ventilator was used to disperse the smoke from the building. One casualty was provided with trauma care.

It was the second incident in Banham on Wednesday afternoon to have emergency services involved after a two-car crash on Doe Lane an hour earlier.
