Emergency services have been called to a house fire on the north Northumberland coast this afternoon.

There was a fire inside a single property, Monks House, on the B1340 between Seahouses and Bamburgh.

Police attended the incident and fire crews are on the scene.

A spokesman for Northumbria Police said that nobody was in the house at the time of the blaze and that there are no injuries. They are unsure of the cause of the fire at this time.
