Krispy Kreme's first Norwich store opened on Friday morning and some eager doughnut fans queued since midnight to get their hands on the sweet treats.

By 8am there were already queues of people outside the store in intu Chapelfield with some people even bringing their own camping chairs and garden furniture.

George and Charlie, both 17, were the first people in the queue and joined at midnight hoping to get their hands on a Gold Card which entitles the holder to free doughnuts every month.

The pair said: 'We have had lots of coffee to keep us going through the night but it is easy when you have got all your mates to talk to.

'They are doughnuts, what is not to like? And they are so good as there are so many different flavours you can get.'
