A blaze broke out at a popular town centre sandwich shop last night.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) said it was called to the Subway outlet in Carr Street, Ipswich, at around 11pm.

In a tweet about the incident, SFRS said five engines and the aerial ladder platform had been called to tackle the blaze.

“There are no reports of any injuries,” a spokesman added.

The fire was reported to be under control by 11.45pm.

A picture of the scene this morning showed the shop boarded up.

We have attempted to contact Subway for confirmation on when the restaurant is likely to reopen.
