Firefighters spent more than an hour tackling a shed fire after a bonfire spread out of control.

Two fire crews, from Worthing and Littlehampton, were called to douse the flames at 8.40pm this evening.

Flames spread from the bonfire in Langbury Lane in Ferring, near Worthing, across part of a garden and onto the shed.

West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said no-one was hurt but the shed was destroyed.

They issued warning to people to take care with bonfires when there was strong wind and make sure they always had a bucket of water to hand.
