A fire has forced police to close the A1064 in both directions in Filby, Great Yarmouth.

A tweet from Norfolk Police said the road was closed between Pound Lane and Ormesby Lane due to a building fire.

Emergency services are on scene from Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and Martham, attending reports of a hedge fire which spread to a shed and then to a property on Main Road in Filby.

Crews used main and hose reel jets supplemented by a hydrant to extinguish the fire.
