    Firefighters have issued a warning about the dangers of people having barbecues on balconies in high-rise buildings.

    West Yorkshire Fire Service said it had dealt with a number of incidents in central Leeds in recent days.

    Deputy chief fire officer Dave Walton said: "We are sympathetic to the fact that residents who live in flats in urban areas may be feeling cooped up and are looking for ways to enjoy the small outdoors areas available to them."

    However, he said: "Having a barbecue on a balcony does pose a risk of fire spreading and could potentially put yourself, your family or flatmates, and other residents at risk."
