A fire has broken out at The English Whisky Company in Roudham, near East Harling.

Four fire engines were the scene on Harling Road at 4.20pm today as everybody was evacuated from the wooden building.

The company, which produces and sells the first English whisky in 120 years, made headline news earlier this year when the first batch of its Chapter 6 whisky sold out in just three hours.

It is not yet known how extensive the fire is.
