Last night, fire crews were called to assess an incident with the potential to cause structural damage to a building in Harewood Drive, Lynn, shortly before 7pm.

However, UK Power Networks says there is no widespread disruption to supplies.

Problems affecting supplies in the Lynn, West Bilney and Massingham areas have been fixed overnight.
