Firefighters have extinguished a blaze at a former car parts factory in Rhondda Cynon Taff.

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service was called to the old Sogefi Filtration building in Llantrisant Business Park, just after 12:00 GMT on Friday.

The building was evacuated and everyone accounted for. The fire service said it had been started accidentally.

The factory closed in 2013 with the loss of 190 jobs and the building is now owned by Edwards Coaches.
