Firefighters have led four people to safety after they were trapped by fire in a close of flats in Saltcoats.

Crews were called to the three-storey building in the North Ayrshire town's Canal Street at about 00:40.

They kept in touch by phone with people in the upper floors before firefighters were able to bring them out safely.

The two men and two women were given precautionary check-ups from paramedics who decided that none of them needed to go to hospital.
