A large fire has broken out at a fish and chip restaurant near Looe overnight.

Crews were called to The Coddy Shack restaurant at around 3.30am on Tuesday 2 May.

At its peak, eight crews were fighting the fire near St Martin on the outskirts of Looe.

The fire has since been brought under control. No-one was hurt in the incident.

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said in a log of the incident: "At 3.23am the Critical Control Centre received an emergency call reporting a fire at an industrial unit on the outskirts of Looe.

"Immediately appliances from Looe and Liskeard Fire Stations were alerted.

"Due to information being received by the Critical Control Centre during repeat calls an additional appliance was mobilised from Liskeard Fire Station alongside a wholetime officer.

"It's normal procedure for this size incident that partner agencies include ambulance, police and National Grid are informed. This allows agencies to plan resourcing should they be required."
