FIRE crews have tackled a blaze in a fryer at a Birds Eye food factory in Lowestoft.

Crews from Lowestoft and North Lowestoft fire stations were sent to the factory on Whapload Road after an automatic fire alarm was sounded at 5.09am.

A spokesman said: “Crews found a fire in one of the fryers and requested an additional fire engine - a further appliance was therefore mobilised from North Lowestoft.

“At 5.50am this fire was extinguished and a foam blanket was applied over the fryer. Crews are currently still in attendance.”
