Have your say

Firefighters are being kept busy by an incident in Sheffield this afternoon.

The fire is in a high-rise flat on Broad Lane.

Five pumps are on scene at the Sharman Court Fresh Student Living block - two from Central station and one each from Rivelin, Parkway and Birley - but a South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Spokesman said the fire 'wasn't as serious as it looked'.

The call came in shortly before 5.30pm.

More as we get it.
