Four fire crews were this morning sent to tackle a blaze at a Castle Mall restaurant in Norwich.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service was alerted shortly after 7am to a fire in Bourgee, one of the newest restaurants in the mall's Timber Hill Terrace.

Crews from Carrow and Sprowston and two from Earlham stations attended the scene after being alerted by security staff at the shopping centre.

However, the fire proved straightforward for crews to manage, extinguishing it in around 20 minutes.

Alan Jaye, station manager at North Earlham, said: "We were alerted this morning to an accidental fire in Bourgee restaurant this morning after security at the mall reported seeing smoke and called 999.
