A fish and chip shop is reopening next week after being closed for almost a year following a fire. 

Stevenson’s, in Sheringham High Street, will open its doors to customers again on Monday after being closed since July last year when a chip pan caught fire and gutted the inside of the building. 

Two members of staff managed to escape the blaze on the night of the fire, turning off the gas as they fled the flames to prevent the fish and chip shop from exploding.

Owner Rob Wicks, who took over the seaside chippy just two weeks before the fire, said: "We're really pleased to be reopening - it's been nearly a year now so we can't wait.

"It's just in time for the summer season and hopefully some better weather, which should bring people out."

The inside of the fish and chip shop has been completely refurbished and will be officially reopened by the mayor of Sheringham, Peter Ratcliffe, who will cut a ribbon outside on Monday at 10am.
