This was the scene as firefighters battled to put out a motorhome blaze in Covingham last night.

Crews from Drove Road and Stratton fire stations were called to Fitzmaurice Close before 7.30pm on Thursday after reports that a motorhome had caught fire.

Firefighters were on the scene within minutes. Crews wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reels and a thermal imaging camera to help them put out the flames.

The crews’ work was done by 8pm.
