A Land Rover damaged a house in Brighton yesterday evening (Sunday 14 February) after crashing into the ground floor of the building.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said that it answered a call-out to the property in Whitehawk shortly after 6.30pm.

The fire service said: “Both building control and a recovery vehicle were requested at the incident. No casualties were reported. Firefighters assisted at the scene and one vehicle was recovered.”

It was one of a number of incidents that kept fire crews busy throughout the day, with a lift rescue among the early jobs. They freed someone who was trapped in a lift in Stroudley Road, by Brighton Station, at 9.40am yesterday morning.

They also freed a dog which had become stuck in railings in Hodshrove Road, Moulsecoomb, at lunchtime.

At just after 2pm crews were sent to deal with a fire started deliberately in Hangleton Park, off Hardwick Road, Hove.

And later in the afternoon they were called out to tackle a rubbish bin fire in Conway Street, Hove.

Two crews were sent to an electrical fire in Lewes Road, Falmer, shortly after 10pm. It started in a light fitting.

Preston Circus firefighters used a thermal imaging camera and CO2 at the incident before clearing smoke from the building with a large fan.
