Part of Prince of Wales Road in Norwich was closed in both directions due to a building fire earlier today.

A spokesperson for Norfolk Fire and Rescue said it had nine fire engines at the scene, due to the size of the building, and police and the ambulance service were also in attendance.

The road was closed from the bridge to the St Faiths Lane junction.
