More than 50 firefighters have tackled a blaze at a building services company on a Hull industrial estate.

At its height on Thursday afternoon, 10 fire appliances from across the city were at the scene at NP Hire on Rotterdam Road.

A Humberside Fire Service spokesman said it was a "severe blaze" and the swift actions of fire crews prevented the building from being destroyed.

The cause of the fire has not yet been established, he added.

Firefighters remained at the scene damping down on Thursday night.
