Firefighters were called to two separate incidents in a north Northumberland town earlier this evening.

One appliance responded to reports that tyres, a sofa and a mattress were alight behind properties in Sycamore Avenue, overlooking the Chapel Lands area of Alnwick, at around 7.30pm.

At around 8pm, the fire crew then assisted with a controlled burn which had got out of control in Upper Barresdale.

Both fires were extinguished swiftly.
