Neighbouring residents had been told to keep doors and windows shut as the workshop at Stow Heath Road, Felmingham contained asbestos.

Police re-opened the road just before 8pm after the area was declared safe.

The building next to Meadow's Barn has been severely damaged with burnt out machinery within the charred remains.

Norfolk Fire Service said several engines were sent to deal with the blaze at 11.30am. The blaze was bought under control within a few hours.
