Firefighters are tackling a huge blaze at Nottingham railway station.

Eight fire crews are at the city centre station after the fire broke out at about 06:30 GMT.

Flames have been seen and smoke has filled the station’s foyer. The building has been evacuated and trains have been stopped from entering and leaving all platforms.

A cordon has been put in place outside the building and around Carrington Street.

Smoke has filled the foyer at the station

Eyewitness Sarah McMullan said she saw smoke coming from a toilet at the station’s car-park.

“You don’t think much of it when there’s a little bit of smoke and police already there, but then we were evacuated,” she said.

“It was pretty frightening to see how quickly a fire can grow. You can see billowing smoke and flames above the roof on the far side.”

Dr Remigius Llione, 49, said: “I drove into the car park and I could already hear the fire alarm.

“The smoke was so thick that you could not see in front of you.”
