More than 40 firefighters are tackling a blaze at a Norfolk kitchen and bathroom showroom.

Crews were called to the industrial unit in Burgh Road, Aylsham, at about 17:30 BST.

Firefighters used an aerial ladder platform to battle flames in the roof of the structure.

There were no reports of any casualties. The A140 was closed in both directions for about an hour-and-a-half as smoke impaired visibility.

A fire service spokesman said the roof had been destroyed, a number of walls had collapsed and stock inside the building had been "severely" damaged.

Crews are expected to remain at the scene until Thursday morning.

Investigations into the cause of the blaze are under way.
