Fire crews tackled a car and van blaze in the car park next to the Grainville football pitch in St Saviour in the early hours of the morning.

Jersey fire and rescue service were called after a member of the public reported seeing flames.

Officers using breathing apparatus say the fire was hazardous with some gas cans exploding and fuel leaks under the vehicles.

The fire is now being investigated by the States of Jersey police.

Jersey fire service said the van contained painting and decorating materials, which made the fire quite hazardous with some gas cans exploding.
