A kitchen fire erupted in a grill pan at the Toby Carvery in Newbury this morning (Mon).

One pump was called from nearby Newbury Fire Station at 10.30am, to the carvery off the Robin Hood roundabout, on the A4.

Staff used a fire blanket to extinguish the blaze, before isolating the gas supply.

The fire was therefore out when firefighters arrived. 

The cooker was badly damaged in the blaze, according to firefighters, who checked over the scene before leaving after twenty minutes.
