Fire crews are still at the scene of a blaze which started at a laundry and linen hire company in Conwy county.

Twelve firefighters are damping down at Express Linen Services on Vale Road in Llandudno Junction.

At its height, 40 firefighters tackled the blaze, which broke out just before 19:30 GMT on Thursday.

North Wales Police said nine nearby properties had been evacuated because of smoke, while one man was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.

A joint investigation is due to be carried out on Friday morning to determine the cause of the fire and structural engineers are working to assess the safety of the building.

Emergency crews are working with Scottish Power to restore power to the area so people can return to their homes.
