Eighty firefighters at Bradford Prospect Mill blaze

Up to 80 firefighters spent almost 12 hours tackling a blaze at a derelict mill in Bradford.

Crews were called to the fire at Prospect Mill, Thornton Road, at about 2020 BST on Wednesday.

Almost half the 100m (328ft) by 40m (131ft) ground floor of the five-storey building was well alight, West Yorkshire Fire Service said.

Firefighters were still at the scene earlier and investigations are continuing into the cause of the blaze.
