About 30 firefighters have been dealing with a blaze at a multi-storey car park in Northamptonshire.

Fire crews were called to the scene at the Willow Place Shopping Centre in Corby at about 18:00 GMT.

Corby Borough Council said a number of flats in the area had been evacuated as a precaution but residents would be allowed back home after 22:30 as the fire has been put out.

One person needed medical treatment for the effects of breathing in smoke.
