The roof of a social club in West Lothian has collapsed after an early morning fire.

A fire service spokesman said Whitburn Miners Club was "well alight" when firefighters arrived, after a passer-by raised the alarm at 0445 BST.

About 50 Lothian and Borders firefighters were involved in tackling the blaze.

A spokesman for the Scottish Ambulance Service said no-one was injured as a result of the fire.

Police closed roads surrounding the building and put up cordons.

Investigations into the cause of the blaze are to be carried out by the fire service.
