Blaze Tears Through Disused Yorkshire School

Dozens of firefighters have been tackling a fire at a disused college building in Bradford.

The fire service was called just after 2am to reports of a blaze at the Yorkshire Martyrs site, a former Catholic college.

Fire service officials said 75 firefighters from across the region and 15 fire engines along with specialist equipment were at the site to tackle the flames.

The disused college on Westgate Hill closed in July last year.

As a result of the fire, emergency services have advised nearby Tong High School to close for the day. The school expects to be open tomorrow.
