A man was taken to hospital following a house fire in Hunstanton late on Wednesday night.

Three crews from Hunstanton, Heacham and Sandringham were called to the blaze at an address in Chilton Crescent, which broke out at around 11.20pm.

The property was described as being “well alight.”

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said a man was treated at the scene for the effects of smoke inhalation. He was later taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Lynn.

In a separate incident, police and fire crews were called to a lorry blaze which followed a crash on the A134 at Mundford in the early hours of yesterday.

Police say the lorry left the northbound carriageway of the road, near the roundabout with the A1065, shortly before 3am on Thursday. The driver was unhurt.

Crews from Methwold and Brandon were called to tackle the fire. Council officials were also alerted to a damaged grass verge.
