FRIEFIGHTERS were sent to a Leominster flat last Saturday after an unattended frying pan left on a hob caused smoke to filter through the property.

A crew was called to Townsend Court , off Green Lane, just after 1.50pm and ventilated the flat.

The fire service had earlier received a report of smoke inside another flat at the same location shortly after 9.35am.

However, the incident was deemed to be a false alarm.
