Firefighters are tackling a large blaze at a car repair business in Lancashire.

Crews were called to the garage in Bowerham Road, Lancaster, at about 16:00 BST.

Eight fire engines are at the scene, and homes have been evacuated because gas cylinders are inside the garage.

Fire station manager Tim Murrell said the fire had spread to a charity shop and convenience store adjoining the garage, and smoke could be seen across the city.
