By Lynn News Reporter


Emergency crews spent hours "shoring up" a house in Heacham to ensure it was structurally safe on Tuesday evening after a car crashed into it.

Firefighters from Heacham and an urban search and rescue (USAR) team were called to the incident on Collingwood Close at about 5.20pm on Tuesday (December 4).

A post on Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service's Instagram account on Wednesday said: "Our Heacham and USAR crew were out until the early hours this morning 'shoring up' someone's home after a car collided with it making it structurally unstable.

"This is one of many technical skills our crews have. A job well done, allowing a family to use their home on the run up to Christmas."

Officers are also asking people to consider whether they could be an on-call firefighter.
