Residents inside a flat alerted neighbours after smelling smoke before realising that rubbish had been set alight on a communal landing.

Several ambulances and five fire engines were part of fifteen emergency service vehicles called to the scene.

Police and firefighters evacuated several floors of residents before firefighters spent two hours dealing with the incident.

The fire service confirmed that no injuries were reported during the fire.
