Firefighters were called into the centre of Cromer to put out a chimney fire at The Wellington pub.

The crew was called to the venue, at the corner of Garden Street and New Street, at around 9.20am this morning (Tuesday, February 18).

A Norfolk Fire and Rescue spokesman said: "Two fire crews, one from Sheringham and one from Cromer attended.

"They used equipment including back pack sprayers and a thermal image camera to extinguish a chimney fire and ventilate an area inside the property."

The pub's manager said around 9.45am it was a chimney fire which had since been put out.

The fire crews left the scene at about 10.45am.
