Have your say

A large fire in Bradford has caused delays to trains in the area.

Six fire engines have been sent to the blaze at the Mangla Motors garage on Edward Street.

Smoke can be seen across the city and the entire building is believed to be alight.

There is a cordon in place around the single-storey car business and there are road closures on Caledonia Street and Edward Street.

Nobody is thought to be inside.

The site of the fire is close to Bradford Interchange, and trains are no longer calling at the station or New Pudsey while the incident is ongoing.
