Firefighters called out to investigate reports of a gas leak at a home in Bishops Hull last night discovered it was actually an electrical fire.

Two fire crews from Taunton were alerted to a possible gas leak and smoke at a property in Lavender Close shortly before 7.30pm.

On arrival, crews confirmed that gas was not involved, and that the fire was within an electric box in the property's roof space.
