Firefighters were called to a holiday park near Canterbury after a camper van caught light.

They were called to the scene at Westmarsh at just after 6pm last night (Sunday, February 24) when the fire broke out in the engine compartment of the vehicle.

It then spread to an adjacent hedge.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel jet to extinguish the flames.

A man in the camper van was given oxygen therapy by firefighters before being handed over to paramedics.

The fire brigade left the scene at 7.35pm.
