COASTGUARDS were called in to put out a blaze today at a harbour in Great Yarmouth.

Firefighters were called just before 7am after reports of smoke coming from a section of the old wooden harbour at the town's South Beach Parade, near the new harbour complex.

One crew from Yarmouth attended, but asked for help from the Gorleston In-shore Lifeboat because it was difficult to reach the blaze.

Pumps from the lifeboat were used to put out the blaze by 7.45am.
