Phone lines at Norfolk County Council have been restored following a fire and suspected power surge.

Staff had to be evacuated from County Hall on Martineau Lane in Norwich after a small electrical fire broke out yesterday morning.

A council spokesman said services were continuing to be restored today, but added power supplies and phone service had been reconnected.

'Engineers will continue working to restore the full range of IT systems, including Norfolk County Council's public website, over the weekend,' the spokesman said.

'The council apologises for the inconvenience caused by the disruption to normal services.
