Firefighters are still at the scene of a blaze at a former pottery factory in Stoke-on-Trent.

The fire at the derelict Royal Doulton building in Nile Street, Burslem, started on the third floor at about 15:15 BST on Friday.

Four crews initially attended the fire, but that has now been reduced to one crew which is checking the scene for "small pockets of fire".

Nile Street remained closed to traffic, police said.
