Printing press blaze in Norfolk

FIREFIGHTERS have tackled a blaze at a newspaper printing press in Norfolk.

FIREFIGHTERS have tackled a blaze at a newspaper printing press used by the Evening Star's sister papers in Norfolk.

Crews were called to the Archant Print building in Thorpe St Andrew, near Norwich, just before 9pm yesterday when the fire broke out.

Four crews attended the large fire, which was put out shortly before 10pm.

The premises, owned by Archant, which publishes The Evening Star, was evacuated when the fire took hold.

However the Star's sister paper, the Evening News in Norwich, was still due to be printed there today.
