Firefighters spent more than two hours tackling a large fire at a compost facility in Carleton Rode this morning.

Three appliances from Attleborough, Wymondham and Long Stratton arrived at industrial premises on Old Buckenham Road, where compost had caught alight, at approximately 7.33am, and used main jets and a hydrant, eventually extinguishing the blaze at around 9.39am.

The source of the blaze is not currently known, but a spokesperson said it was ‘likely’ there would be a fire investigation.
