A popular fish and chip shop has reopened - much to the delight of the community - nine long months after it was destroyed by a fire.

Despite the wet and cold weather, dozens of people waited outside of Woody's Fish Bar, on Church Street, Attleborough, ready to once again be able to order their favourites.

First in line was Carol Kidd, who said she was a regular customer before the blaze ripped through the shop during the evening of Saturday, February 27.

She said: 'I am going to order cod and chips two times. I used to come here all the time. I am definitely glad it is back. It is the best.'

Town crier Alan Austin announced the reopening of the shop as the doors opened at 12pm.

Mr Austin said: 'The youngsters like it. It is nice for it to be open again. We have got to support the town.'

The shop, which is owned by Cenk Yildiz and his wife Gulseven, has a different layout inside and will have a fresh fish counter and will sell kebabs.
