Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reels to extinguish the fire before returning to base by 2.55am.

At 5.30am, firefighters from St Neots and Gamlingay rushed to Levellers Lane, Eynesbury, where a fire had broken out involving two light goods vehicles and three cars.

Wearing breathing apparatus, four firefighters used hose reels to extinguish the flames and fans to clear smoke from the area before arriving back at their stations at 9.10am.

Anyone with information about either incident should contact police on 101.
