Electrical fault after Newport Road tub flood.

FIRE fighters were called out for bath time in Barnstaple last night (Thursday) when an overflowing tub sent smoke billowing from household wiring.

Two fire engines attended the 7.45pm 'flooding' in Newport Road after fire alarms were activated.

They discovered bath water had entered the property's electrical system and isolated the power supply to make it safe, before leaving the matter with the landlord.
