Potters Bar firefighters were called to the scene of a smoking bollard last night.

The crew received a 999 call with a report of a fire in a bollard in the middle of Holloways Lane, Welham Green, at about 11pm.

The bollard had been knocked over and heavy rainfall appeared to have triggered an electrical fire.

Once on the scene, firefighters stood by while the Highways Agency called an electrician to sort it out.
