A two-storey mill in Greater Manchester has been destroyed by a fire.

Twenty firefighters fought the blaze that broke out at about 05:00 BST at Smallbridge Textiles on Dyehouse Lane in Wardle, Rochdale.

Investigators believe the fire started in a woodwork shop and storage area before spreading to both floors.

There have been no reports of casualties and the building is now being made safe, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said.
