Truro three-storey building blaze tackled by fire crews

The cause of the fire at Cafe Cleopatra in St Mary's Street, which started at about 05:00 GMT, is unknown.

Firefighters from Tolvaddon, Falmouth, Hayle, Perranporth, St Austell, St Dennis and St Just attended the blaze.

St Mary's Street and New Bridge Street in the city centre were closed for most of Sunday.
