A huge fire has broken out at a three-storey warehouse in Bradford, with residents evacuated and power lost to homes and businesses.

Large flames and plumes of smoke could be seen coming from the building next to a mill complex on Legrams Lane.

The fire service said it started just before 02:45 BST and at its height, 18 engines tackled the blaze.

Up to 30 people were evacuated from nearby flats and residents told to keep windows and doors shut in Shearbridge.
