Across Lincolnshire, there were 24 callouts over the period, compared to 22 in 2011.

A Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said: We are pleased that bonfire night-related fires have remained low across the county.

“There were no significant incidents reported, but people should remain vigilant if they are planning a late bonfire celebration.”

Meanwhile, East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) confirmed the number of calls it received across the East Midlands went down from nine in 2011 to seven between November 3 and 5 this year.
