The latest pictures of the fire at Hyholmes, in Bretton, the cause of which is not yet known.

Police and fire crews were called at 12.31am on Sunday, August 16 to a substantial fire in a building affecting a gas mains supply.

The response has since been 'scaled back', after gas engineers and emergency services worked to bring the situation under control.

Residents have not yet been able to return home, but officials are hopeful safety checks to begin that process can begin early-afternoon.
