'Major explosion' heard as shisha cafe fire started

A witness has described hearing a "major explosion" at the time a fire broke out at a shisha cafe in Cardiff's City Road in the early hours of Sunday.

Matthew Haines, who lives near the scene of the fire, said firefighters had to work "non-stop" to bring the fire under control.

Part of City Road in the Roath area of the city was closed for most of Sunday morning while crews tackled the fire and carried out investigations.
