More than 100 firefighters worked through the night to quell the flames and stop the blaze at the popular store spreading to other buildings on Saturday, June 20.

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said: “The investigation is ongoing, and we’re reliant on further work to determine the exact cause.”

Community leaders have rallied round to support those involved.

And a clap was held on Saturday, June 27 thanking Budgens staff for their help over the years.

Meanwhile, more than £6,991 has been raised in a crowdfunder page set up to support staff and to thank them for their help.

No-one was hurt in the fire at the building, in Kerridge Way, which also housed the town’s only post office.

A pop-up post office is now in situ at Bakers and Larners of Holt.
