Fire services were called out to the Badabing Italian restaurant last night after a fire broke out, devastating the inside of the building.

As many as 30 firefighters were called to the scene at 2:10 am to tackle the blaze which had consumed the entire restaurant by this time.

No casualties have been reported and it has been confirmed that nobody was inside the building at the time of the fire.

Local resident Martin Stevens saw the fire on his way home;

‘I came along the canal and from a distance I could see Badabing fully in flames’.

‘I went for a closer look and the fire services were already there trying to put it out. I got there at about 2:30 and the fire brigade got there at 2.10 so it had only been on the go for 20 minutes but it was well alight by this point.’

‘I’m unsure what caused it but I was told nobody was hurt at the time.’

Fire crews were still at the scene this morning.
