FIRE crews attended an electrical blaze at the 199 steps in the early hours of last Friday.

Two square metres of underground cables had sparked and caused a small fire which was extinguished by crews from Whitby and Lythe using a dry powder extinguisher.

The area was cordoned off awaiting inspection by the electricity board.
