Four fire crews were sent to Castle Mall this morning following reports of smoke coming from the shopping centre.

Appliances from Carrow, Earlham, Sprowston and Hethersett were sent to Farmers Avenue in Norwich shortly after 11.30am.

But a fire service spokesman said the incident was a false alarm, caused by smoke in the building's vents.

The crews have now left the scene.
