FIRE crews attended a Felixstowe charity shop today after staff smelled burning.

Two crews from town's fire station went to the British Heart Foundation shop in Hamilton Road at about 10am.

A fire service spokesman said staff had reported a smell of burning but there was no sign of any fire.

Firefighters were using thermal imaging cameras to check throughout the shop in case there was a fire in cables hidden in a wall or flooring.
