FIREFIGHTERS in Essex have tackled a blaze that broke out at a Chinese restaurant.

The fire started at the rear of the Golden Dragon in St John's Street, Colchester, at just after midday.

Two fire crews from Colchester and a third from Wivenhoe attended the scene and firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reels to put out the flames, which were fully extinguished by 1pm.
