Lincoln firefighters were called out to reports of a fire on the evening of March 19 – which turned out to be a hoax call.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue were contacted at just before 7pm by a caller claiming that there was a bush on fire on Cedar Avenue.

However, when the firefighters arrived on the scene there was no fire.

The service took to Twitter to express their frustration at the incident.
