The fire service have said that they're treating a blaze at a former restaurant in Bangor, County Down as suspicious.

The fire service received a call to the premises of Villa Toscana on the West Circular Road at about 21:00 GMT on Tuesday.

Police closed the road between the Newtownards Road junction and Clandeboye Road junction due to poor visibility, but it has now reopened.

Four fire appliances tackled the blaze, which was later extinguished.
