One of the main shopping streets in Bangor city centre has been closed because of a "significant" fire.

Firefighters were called to a blaze in a flat above Japanese restaurant Noodle One on High Street at about 03:00 GMT.

The flat was empty at the time and no-one is reported to have been hurt in the fire, which is now out.

North Wales Police said the road would remain closed between the cathedral and Varsity bar while an investigation into the cause is carried out.
