More than a dozen fire crews spent the night tackling a blaze at a former holiday camp in Norfolk.

Police, firefighters and the ambulance service were all called to the old Pontins site at Beach Road in Hemsby on Friday (August 17) night.

At its peak, 15 crews were needed to fight the flames and three remained on the scene on Saturday morning.

Pontins last welcomed guests to the coastal holiday camp in the summer of 2008 and has been officially closed since January 2009.

The site has been the victim of a number of fires since then including one just last month (July).
