It was reported a fire broke out on the forth floor and smoke could be seen billowing in the corridor. Police said the fire was caused by an electrical fault in a store room.

Hotel staff carried out evacuation procedures as crews dealt with the fire. Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze and carried out ventilation soon after.

A South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue spokesman told The Star no one was injured.

Police and paramedics were also called out to the scene in Sheffield city centre.
