Firecrews are dealing with smouldering remains left from the huge fire at Great Yarmouth's Regent Superbowl.

Emergency services were called just before 3.30am this morning to the fire in Regent Road.

A number of properties were evacuated and a cordon put in place, as 29 fire crews from across Norfolk and Suffolk battled the flames.

The fire has been put out now and it's not thought anyone's been hurt, but it's believed shops on Regent Road will be affected for the next few days.

Business owners in Great Yarmouth have told Heart they're heartbroken.

Brandon Lewis, MP for Great Yarmouth, has been speaking to us and says it's important now to "remind people that Great Yarmouth is open for business and for tourists." He said he's "already been speaking to the leader of the council... they're determined to give the support that is needed to the businesses, they're determined to get them back up and running as soon as possible."
