Embers alert at Alton Towers during fireworks display

Firefighters have been called to Alton Towers after an incident during the theme park's yearly fireworks display.

A spokesman for Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service said two fire engines and a ladder platform had been sent there after embers strayed onto a roof.

We've got a quite small incident at Alton Towers.

It's just some embers in a roof from one of either the fireworks or the bonfire that they've had.
