A fire broke out in a deep fat fryer at an Italian restaurant in Dorset.

Crews were called to Bella Italia in St Mary Street, Weymouth, at about 20:00 BST on Monday.

The blaze severely damaged half of the kitchen and caused smoke to billow into the Mothercare store next door.

Four members of staff evacuated the restaurant before fire crews arrived and no-one was injured. No customers were in the restaurant at the time.

There was no damage to the Mothercare store.
