Two fire engines were called to a flat in Weymouth earlier this morning to tackle a fire caused by a meal left unattended in the oven.

At about 10:15 Dorset Fire Service were called to the fire on Derby Street.

Fire-fighters managed to put out the fire quickly.

A spokesman for Dorset Fire and Rescue say that unattended cooking is "an all too frequent occurrence" and that unattended cooking can lead to "serious consequences".

The fire service will be offering local residents free safety advice at a later date.
