At 5.45pm, crews from Great Yarmouth and Gorleston were called to a fire in the Yankee Traveller restaurant on King Street in Great Yarmouth town centre.

Crews spend 30 minutes putting out the blaze, using rose reel jets and a hydrant to extinguish the fire.

Crews left the scene at around 6.15pm after checking the building for hot spots.

As a result, the restaurant closed for the evening, however, posting on Facebook the owners confirmed it would be re-open as normal over the weekend.

Thanks for your understanding and see you all very soon!"
