Residents who had to leave their houses as firefighters tackled a blaze at an MoT garage in Blaenau Gwent have been allowed to return home.

Crews were called to the single-storey building at Bournville Road, Blaina, Abertillery, at about 03:30 GMT.

A 650ft (200m) cordon was put in place, the road was closed and 25 homes were evacuated because there were gas cylinders inside the garage.

Residents were allowed home later on Thursday.
