A fire has broken out at a derelict Leeds social club which is due to be demolished.

Firefighters were called to the old Seacroft Green Social Club in Brooklands Avenue at around 12.40pm today.

West Yorkshire Fire Service said crews from Killingbeck and Moortown were working to put out the fire in the single storey building.

A spokesman said around 70 per cent of the building was alight.

He said that firefighters wearing breathing apparatus were currently using two large jets and one hose reel to put out of the flames.
