Firefighters have been tackling a blaze in the roof of a block of flats in Leicestershire.

The fire at the property on Lawyer's Lane, Oadby, near Leicester, started on Sunday afternoon, a Leicestershire fire service spokesman said.

The roof of the three-storey building was severely damaged, but no-one was injured.

Fire crews used several hose jets and a turntable ladder to bring the flames under control.

An investigation will take place to determine the cause of the fire.
