CUSTOMERS and staff at Costa Coffee in Barnstaple had to be evacuated for a short time on Saturday after the smell of burning was detected.

Two fire crews from Barnstaple attended at around 3.20pm and discovered there had been a small electrical fire in a light fitting which was out when they arrived.

Fire fighters made the fitting safe and enabled the store to carry on trading until an electrician could be brought in.
