A warning has been issued after fire crews were called to a hoax flat fire this afternoon (Tuesday 1st April 2014).

Firefighters from Gainsborough and Retford were called just after 3.20pm to reports of smoke coming from a flat on Spital Terrace. It turned out to be a hoax call.

The Gainsborough crew was able to get the message to the Retford crew before they arrived, and firefighters turned back.
