Five crews, including the aerial ladder platform, were called to The East Hills cafe at Brundall Bay Marina after reports of a fire at just after 6am.

The fire, which is thought to have been caused by an electrical fault, has damaged much of the interior and seen a section of the floor give way.

Owner Sophie Hodgkinson said the café would be closed for a short while, but would be back up and running again soon.

Firefighters used hose reel jets to extinguish, while a thermal imaging camera has been used to check for hotspots.
