Several businesses have been evacuated after a fire broke out at a transport yard in Nottinghamshire.

A 200m cordon has been put in place at Lowmoor Business Park, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, where a garage and a workshop were severely damaged by fire.

Fire crews remained at the scene on Monday night, damping down gas cylinders as a precaution.

A spokesperson for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue said it was likely to be 24 hours before the site was made safe.
