Firefighters were tackling a huge blaze at a large building in Bradford this morning

Fifteen crews rushed to what is though to have been the Simba Smoby Toys warehouse at Hall Lane at 5.12am.

Two aerial appliances were sent to the scene along with support from across the brigade.

Damping down has since taken place, but it is understood that around 100 firefighters were on the scene when the fire was at its fiercest.
