Fire alert at Norwich’s Zizzi restaurant

Diners had to be evacuated from a city restaurant this evening after a fire alert.

The fire brigade was sent to Zizzi in Tombland, Norwich, at about 9pm.

Customers were temporarily evacuated from the building while a fire engine attended the scene. The Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service confirmed it had been a false alarm.

As previously reported, the city's branch of Zizzi closed for several months after a blaze in October last year. The revamped restaurant, which was given a new look as part of the repair work, reopened in March this year.
