An investigation is underway after a fire started at one of Rick Stein's flagship Cornish restaurants.

The blaze broke out in a bin store outbuilding at Stein's Porthleven eatery just after 4am on Monday morning. The cause of the fire is still being assessed but there is no damage to restaurant itself. A spokesperson told ITV News they hope to be open tomorrow as usual.

The celebrity chef has developed a chain of fish and chip shops and restaurants on the north Cornwall coast.

In a tweet from the restaurant's account, a spokesperson said that it was most important that no-one was hurt.

Crews from Helston, Tolvaddon and Mullion have been dealing with a fully-involved property fire, according to Cornwall Fire and Rescue.

At the height of the incident it was sectorised into two sectors with firefighters using four hose reel jets and two main jets to bring the fire under control.
