More than 50 firefighters have been tackling a large mill fire in Bradford.

Crews from across West Yorkshire were called to the blaze in the disused four-storey building on Great Horton Road, officers said.

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said 10 appliances were at the scene on Tuesday evening along with two aerial platforms.

A spokesman said on Twitter: “If in area and affected by smoke please close doors/windows as a precaution.”

Witnesses reported seeing flames pouring from the roof of the building and smoke visible from a large part of the Bradford district.
