Firefighters were called out to dozens of Bonfire Night mishaps yesterday as thousands of people across the county celebrated the occasion.

Emergency crews were braced for a busy night as revellers marked Guy Fawkes Night with their own bonfires and fireworks displays.

Gerrards Cross firefighters had to put out a bonfire in Priory Close in Denham at 6.40pm on Monday because it was close to fencing and a gate.

Meanwhile, firefighters from High Wycombe were called to Cambridge Crescent at 6.24pm amid reports of a fire in the open which turned out to be intentional burning.

High Wycombe crews also used a hose reel to put out a skip fire in Main Road, Naphill, at 5.17pm, while they were also called to a bin fire in Ash Road, Princes Risborough, at 3.52pm.

Firefighters were also busy over the weekend tackling blazes – with crews called to an organised bonfire in Sawpit Hill, Hazlemere, just after 6pm on Sunday, November 4.

They also received reports of smoke in Willow Avenue, High Wycombe, at 5.16pm the same day but it was a false alarm due to controlled burning.

Earlier that day, High Wycombe crews used buckets of water to make a smouldering tree stump at The Rye safe at around 3.30pm.

And at around 3pm, crews put out a fire in the open in Burghfield Road in Loudwater.
