The other side of Bonfire Night: Fire fighters attend 500 incidents

Fire crews on Tyneside say this Bonfire Night was one of their busiest. They attended nearly 500 incidents - 51 more than last year.

The majority of calls were to put out illegal bonfires, which fire-fighters say wastes time and resources.

ITV Tyne Tees joined one of the 'white-watch' crews for their Bonfire Night shift.
