Homes near a Liverpool cricket club had to be evacuated when a major fire broke out at its pavilion.

At the height of the blaze at Hightown Cricket Club, 30 firefighters and six appliances were brought in to try to bring it under control.

The single storey building, in Thirlmere Road, was being dampened down by three appliances that remained at the scene earlier.

An investigation is under way into the cause.
