NOODLE ONE in Bangor is "gone" as a result of a fire in the early hours of this morning.

The noodle bar, located on the High Street near the Varsity sports bar, made the announcement on Facebook.

A statement read: "Our hearts are broken and our life changed forever. Noodle One is gone.

"Thankfully there was no one injured in the fire."

Firefighters rushed to the scene at 2.55am this morning to tackle the blaze.

Two crews from Bangor, one from Menai Bridge and an aerial ladder, which is a special appliance, were in attendance.

They had been working since the early hours of this morning to make the building safe and confirmed that nobody was in the building when the fire occurred.

The road between Bangor Cathedral and Varisty was closed for several hours. An investigation is now underway to determine the cause.
