A man prevented a serious incident when he went to investigate why his radio had suddenly gone off. The householder went to check the electrical power unit in the garage beneath his bungalow, in Toothill Bank, Rastrick, Brighouse, and found it was melting and burning. He used a hosepipe to douse the flames.

Fire crews from Brighouse and Elland went to the scene, at 9.30am on Saturday, to ensure it was safe. Minor damage was caused to the garage.
