A section of Finchampstead Road had to be closed this afternoon after a fire broke out in a restaurant kitchen.

Crews from Wokingham and Bracknell were sent to the blaze in the Wokingham Gourmet Kitchen, opposite Carnival Pool, at about 3.50pm.

They used breathing apparatus and one hose reel to extinguish the fire and then ventilated the premises.

One member of staff was taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation and the restaurant was smoke damaged.

Part of Finchampstead Road was closed for about one hour because of the amount of smoke in the area.
