An investigation is due to start into the cause of a major fire at the former Jewsons builders' merchants in Bangor, Gwynedd.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service was called to the site in Hirael at 15:48 BST on Tuesday, and crews brought the fire under control within two hours.

The High Street remains closed in both directions, between A5 Beach Road and Glynne Road.

No-one was believed to have been in the disused building at the time.

Firefighters from Bangor, Llanfairfechan and Beaumaris attended, as the fire spread through the roof of the building.

A fire investigation officer is now due to try to establish the cause of the blaze.
