AN UNATTENDED bonfire was reported to the Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service tonight (Sunday).

Crews from Newport and Ryde headed to the scene near Ashey Road and Leighwood Close — although Newport turned back en-route as they weren't needed.

The call came in from concerned local residents at 7.10pm.

The stop message was received after around half an hour, and the crew was preparing to leave the scene shortly afterwards.
