TRAFFIC was disrupted in central Bournemouth this evening after fire crews were called to a restaurant.

Three fire crews from Westbourne, Redhill and Springbourne went to Pera Rose Turkish Cuisine in Old Christchurch Road after reports of a fire in the kitchen area.

A section of the road was closed, with traffic re-routed along Wootton Gardens.

However, a Yellow Bus became stuck in the diversion, causing further misery for motorists.

No one was injured in the fire, which spread to the roof through the ventilation system in the kitchen.
