It is exactly 20 years ago that fire destroyed one of the region's biggest libraries.
August 1st 1994 is a day those in the centre of Norwich will never forget.
Tens of thousands of books and documents were lost as firefighters took eight hours to bring the blaze under control - but thankfully priceless records and manuscripts were saved.
David Ashworth was one of the 200 firefighters drafted in to deal with the emergency. It's just about one of the biggest incidents he's had to tackle.

Thankfully vital documents which were stored in the basement survived.
