Fire at Dove Court elderly housing complex

About 40 people were evacuated from a residential complex for the elderly in Bradford after a fire broke out.

Fire crews were called to the Dove Court assisted living complex on Bolton Street at about 08:55 BST.

West Yorkshire Fire Service said no-one was injured in the blaze.

A spokeswoman from the Hanover Housing Association, which manages the site, said residents had been moved to a nearby medical centre while temporary accommodation is found.

The fire was contained to the roof and part of the third floor of the complex.

The fire service is working with Bradford Council's emergency planning team to establish its cause.
