The warning comes after firefighters were called to a serious garden fire in King's Lynn - that had been caused by a BBQ. 

A spokesman said on Twitter: 

"Firefighters are asking for extra care when using barbecue equipment after responding to a serious garden fire in King’s Lynn.

"BBQ's need full attention whilst cooking & clearing away. We recommend avoiding use of BBQ’s during this period to reduce risk. #Stayhome but #StaySafe"
