Experts are to be called in to demolish the remains of historic buildings ravaged by fire in Fakenham.

The old Aldiss building on Upper Market Place is a smoking ruin after Sunday's fire. More than ninety fire fighters brought it under control. Crews were at the scene overnight.

People were led to safety from flats in the row but no-one was injured. Norfolk's Fire chief said the buildings could not be saved.
