Firefighters rushed to help emergency situations across St Albans this weekend.

The Herts Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS) assisted a driver who had left the road and crashed into a forested area on the B561 in Sandridge, on Saturday (January 27) at about 6pm.

There was also a moped fire on Park Street Lane on Sunday (January 28), which was attended by a fire engine from Garston.

They extinguished the blaze around 6.45pm.

A tree went up in flames on Lybury Lane on Sunday at about 4.10pm, but crews from Redbourn were able to put it out.

HFRS also received “an abundance of calls” about a car fire between junctions eight and nine of the M1, at about 4.30pm on Sunday.

Both St Albans and Hemel Hempstead firefighters were called out to tackle the flames.
