He said the situation was rare and said the service was under ‘severe pressure’.
In a series of Tweets, the fire service said: “We are currently extremely busy due to a very high number of incidents in relation to the weather.
In the meantime please only call 999 if it is an actual emergency. Think before you call. We are doing our best to respond but are stretched.”
ALL our resources are currently attending incidents. Our resilience is being seriously tested. Please be patient.
