A major fire broke out above a block of shops and flats in Sheffield city centre last night.

Photos show how five fire engines were needed to fight the blaze at the corner of Campo Lane and North Church Street starting at around 10pm.

The buildings at the junction are a mix of offices, flats and a number of shops, including a juice bar and a barbers. It is unclear at this time which buildings have been affected directly or if anyone was injured in the incident.

A resident nearby told The Star how they feared the blaze spreading to their homes, and how they had to shut their windows to keep smopke out.

The street was shut well into the early hours of October 8 while officers dealt with the blaze.
