An electrical fault has been blamed for a fire at a nightclub in Bath.

A spokesman for Avon Fire and Rescue said the blaze at Moles in George Street on Saturday morning was accidental.

The fire in the four-story building caused heavy smoke damage and the club is still closed.

There were initial reports that members of a band were sleeping in an upper floor.

However, a subsequent search found the building was empty.
