Fire crews remain at the scene of Cathedral Green battling a major blaze that has now spread to the Royal Clarence hotel.

Road closures are in place at the junctions of High Street and South Street, of South Street and the Cathedral Green, on Queen Street at the rear end of Tesco, on North Street at the Iron Bridge end, on Musgrave Road and on Bedford Square at the junction with High Street to allow the fire service to complete its work and for the safety of the public.

It is thought these closures are likely to remain overnight and there could be distruption to traffic.

Cathedral Green is cordoned off to the public.

It is not known at this time how the fire started. No injuries are reported.
