Five fire crews were called out to tackle the blaze in Mill Lane and people living nearby were urged by the fire service to keep their doors and windows closed due to smoke.

The smoke could be seen as far away as Norwich city centre.

Four crews - from Sprowston, Earlham, Carrow and Aylsham - were sent to the scene along with a relief crew from Loddon and a water carrier from Hethersett.
