The fire service confirmed the flames had been fully extinguished - and recorded a 'stop message' - just before 6.35am.

A spokesman said the fire started in a storeroom close to the Deep Blue fish and chip restaurant, and was 'heavily developed' when crews arrived.

He said crews removed the roof of the storeroom in order to access the flames and prevent them spreading further.
