Fire breaks out on Obel Tower

A fire has broken out at the top of Ireland's tallest building.

Around fifty firefighters were called to deal with the incident on the roof of the Obel Tower in Belfast.

The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service said there had been no reports of any injuries.

A number of residents have been evacuated from the landmark city centre property, which stands at 85 metres and overlooks the River Lagan.

Police closed surrounding roads as nine fire appliances attended the scene.
