A large garden centre in Cornwall had to be evacuated after a fire broke out.
The blaze at the Homeleigh garden centre in Dutson, near Launceston, was in a basement containing Christmas stock.
It began shortly before 0915 GMT and took 35 firefighters several hours to put out.
Staff and customers were forced to vacate the centre, which includes a restaurant and hair salon.
