King Street in Great Yarmouth was closed while crews fought fire at a property above a shop.

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said two appliances from Yarmouth and one from Gorleston were called at 10.40am.

On arrival they found a fire in a building on the third floor. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus entered the building and using hose reel jets supplemented by a hydrant extinguished the fire.

Fans were used to clear the smoke and a thermal camera was used to ensure the flames were out.

King Street was shut around the York Road junction for about an hour and a half.
