Hotel fire

Twenty four people were evacuated from the Prom Hotel on Great Yarmouth's seafront this morning after a fire broke out in a kitchen.

The fire started at about 6.15am in the building on Marine Parade which is next to Pub on the Prom.

Two fire engines from Yarmouth were called out to deal with the fire after smoke was seen issuing from the hotel.

It took crews 50 minutes to put out the blaze.
