The Fire Brigade service in Donegal made one of its shortest ever journeys today - to attend an incident just a few hundred metres away from its Letterkennny headquarters.

A number of vehicles were damaged after a fire broke out in a van in a Letterkenny General Hospital car park before lunch.

The matter was quickly brought under control.

The incident led to lengthy traffic delays briefly in the area.

It is understood that nobody was injured.
