Blaze at Suffolk fish and chip shop
MORE than a dozen firefighters tackled a blaze at a Suffolk fish and chip shop today.
HOT batter thrown into a bin at a fish and chip shop in Suffolk led to a fire breaking out early this morning.

Three crews from the town used breathing equipment and a hose reel jet to successfully extinguish the flames and bring the fire under control.
