Crews tackle large Rotherham warehouse fire

Up to 60 firefighters have spent the night tackling a large fire at industrial units in Rotherham.

The fire started on Wednesday night in an office furniture warehouse in Meadow Bank Road, Meadowbank, and then spread to neighbouring units.

Police set up a cordon around the scene after gas cylinders were found and people living nearby were asked to stay indoors as a precaution.

Crews remained at the scene on Thursday damping down.
