Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service has had a busy weekend of call outs in Douglas.

Officers posted to Facebook to say they responded to three incidents yesterday (Saturday).

At 1.43pm crews were called to a car smoking on Peel Road, helping the owner to make safe before recovery was arranged.

At 3.04pm fire crews were called to a grass fire on Marine Drive, where a bush was well-alight.

Crews extinguished the fire with a high pressure hose reel.

Then at 4.23, a call was received to help a person trapped in a public toilet in the Douglas area, with officers in attendance for approximately half an hour.

The Fire Service also issued a reminder in the post to remind people who use disposable barbecues that they come with risks and to never leave them unattended.
