It was a busy night for firefighters in East Cambridgeshire on Thursday as crews were called to two car fires.

Crews used a dry powder extinguisher to quell the flames and returned to their station by 6pm.

A second incident was reported at about 6.40pm in Rosebay Gardens, Soham, with a crew from the town using two hose reels to put out the blaze.

The cause of the fire was accidental, by electrical equipment.
