A fire broke out in a city centre restaurant on Thursday morning.

Three crews of firefighters, from Earlham, Carrow and Sprowston, were called to The Library on Guildhall Hill at 9.10am.

They arrived on scene six minutes later and used hose reel and main jets to put out the blaze.

Owner Jayne Raffles said the fire was minor and had been contained to one room, with no loss to business.

The restaurant's Twitter account posted: 'Rather too much excitement this morning fire engines contain small fire @RafflesFood. Busy as normal tonight phew'
