Major fire breaks out at historic Northern Ireland linen mill

A major fire has broken out at a linen mill in Northern Ireland, thought to be one of the world's oldest.

Thirty firefighters are at the scene at the William Clarke and Sons textile plant in Upperlands, outside Maghera, Co Londonderry.

Six appliances are also at the scene.

The factory dates back to 1736 and on its website describes itself as Ireland's oldest linen fabric mill.
