Two fire engines were called to the River Stour near Sandwich Quay after a fire broke out in a boat's engine room on Tuesday afternoon.

When crews arrived they found the back of the vessel well-alight and used breathing gear and hoses to tackle the flames.

The fire on the 10 metre pleasure craft broke out just after 3pm.
