Six fire crews rushed to Haven's Hopton Holiday Village in the early hours of Friday morning following reports of a fire on the site in Warren Road.

Firefighters arrived on scene at 5.20am which included appliances from Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft north, Lowestoft south, Martham and Loddon.

Operations director for Hopton Holiday Village, Gareth Brown, said: "A fire occurred earlier this morning which has damaged the roof space in the vestibule area of the main food and entertainment complex.

"Thankfully no one was injured and as the park is relatively quiet at this time of year, the affected area will be closed without it causing substantial disruption."

The fire was extinguished by 8.11am with two appliances remaining on the scene.

Investigations into how the fire started remain ongoing.
