Firefighters are still battling a blaze at a Sheffield industrial estate two days after it began.

A warehouse on the Yarra estate, off Station Road in Ecclesfield, went up in flames on Thursday evening.

At its height there were six fire engines at the scene.

The flames have receded but there are still pockets of flame, and crews from across Sheffield have been taking turns to try to bring the fire under control.

The cause of the blaze is not yet known.

People living nearby have been warned to keep their doors and windows closed where possible.
