FIREFIGHTERS were called out to a York suburb this evening after residents reported hearing a bang.

But North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service said investigations had shown the loud 'pop' had come from a trench which had been dug in the road at Heworth by Northern Powergrid, and there had been no explosion or fire.

A spokesman said firefighters left the scene after calling in engineers from the power firm to deal with the matter.
