It was a busy day for emergency services yesterday, with call outs to several incidents across the county.

The first incident that emergency services responded to was a house fire. Crews from Hereford & Worcester Fire & Rescue Service were called to a house on Church Way in Holmer at around 8.40am, after reports of a fire. On arrival crews discovered a fire in an electrical box and using breathing apparatus, a hose reel jet and CO2 extinguisher they managed to deal with it quickly. West Midlands Ambulance Service also attended the call and carried out precautionary checks on one adult for smoke inhalation.

Emergency services were then called to a RTC in Mordiford. The incident was reported to be near The Moon Inn and congestion quickly built up in the area.

The A49 was then closed in both directions at Dinmore Hill due to a fire in an ambulance. This caused severe delays between Hereford and Leominster. Fortunately nobody was injured.

The day was then complete when a car smashed into the front of the Central Bakery in Leominster town centre, causing significant damage.

Emergency services arrived at the scene to find the front of the shop smashed in, with a nearby parked car also reported to have been damaged. The driver is also reported to have failed to stop but local residents have said that he was then arrested at another location in the town.
