Fifty firefighters have been tackling a huge fire at a warehouse in Greater Manchester.

Crews were called to Halliwell Road in Bolton at about 1450 BST.

About 30 residents had to be moved from their homes and part of Halliwell Road has been closed, with motorists being advised to avoid the area.

Firefighters have put a 100m (328ft) cordon around the site, which the fire service said was likely to remain in place overnight.
