Appliances from Dewsbury, Cleckheaton and Ossett attended the blaze, which has destroyed the building.

Watch Commander Chris Stenson, at Dewsbury Fire Station, said: “The flames and smoke were coming out of the windows when we first arrived.

“The club itself is completely ruined but we managed to stop the fire from spreading to a house next door.”

Crews remain at the scene of the fire - near Batley Bulldogs’ Fox’s Biscuits Stadium and an investigation has been launched into what caused it.
