Firefighters have rescued a man, woman and child from a blaze at a block of flats in Port Glasgow, Inverclyde.

Crews were called to the three-storey building in the town's Highholm Street at about 20:50 on Wednesday.

They led a man to safety from a ground-floor flat. He was later treated in hospital for smoke inhalation.

Crews also rescued a woman and child from a second-floor flat. They were given oxygen at the scene along with five other adults and two children.

One of those adults, a man, was later taken to Inverclyde Royal Hospital in Greenock for a precautionary check up.

The blaze was extinguished just after 21:00 and all residents were accounted for.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is under way.
