Major fire at old furniture store

More than 40 firefighters spent the night tackling a major fire in Stoke-on-Trent.

Crews were sent to the old Frayling Furniture premises in Davenport Street, Longport, Burslem, on Monday.

Part of the building has collapsed and the fire crews were still dealing with the fire on Tuesday morning.

Eight appliances were involved in fighting the blaze. An investigation into what caused it is expected to begin later.
