Firefighters dealing with a house fire in Sheffield have the blaze under control.

They were called to a farmhouse in Spout Lane, Stannington, at 3.10am and found the property engulfed in flames.

South Yorkshire Police said the building has been left unsafe after the blaze, so firefighters have not yet been able to search it.
