A busy shopping area in Nottingham has been closed off after a fire hit a five-storey building.

About 35 firefighters were called to the blaze at the new Costa Coffee shop in Listergate just before 0930 GMT.

The fire service said 20% of the building had been damaged by smoke and fire, but that the blaze had been brought under control before 1200 GMT.

A neighbouring building was slightly damaged by smoke but no-one was injured.

The cause of the fire is not yet known, fire investigators said.
