Two men have been arrested on suspicion of arson after a fire broke out at a busy nightclub in Hull in the early hours of the morning.

Four fire engines were sent to Valbon, on George Street, at 02:30 GMT. About 350 people were evacuated.

The venue, formerly Pozition, was recently re-launched after a major refurbishment. It is not thought anyone was injured in the blaze.

Humberside Police said the men, both 23, were in custody for questioning.

The club said it would be shut until further notice for repairs to be carried out.
