10 fire appliances are on scene. Much of the structure appears to have collapsed.

To the north is a Webuyanycar unit and a ParcelForce depot though as yet it is unknown if affected.

This follows a large fire in the area in August.

More soon.


As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
