Four people have been arrested on suspicion of arson following a large fire in West Yorkshire on Saturday.

West Yorkshire Police and West Yorkshire Fire Service were called to The Drive in Bardsey, near Wetherby, to a suspected gas mains fire.

Firefighters got the fire under control by Sunday morning and there were no injuries.

However a small number of properties were evacuated on Saturday night as a precaution.

Keswick Lane was closed for a time to allow emergency services access.

The fire is now out and roads have been reopened. West Yorkshire Police said the majority of residents had been allowed back home.
