Firefighters are damping down at the scene of a major fire in Richmond, North Yorkshire.

The fire in a row of shops in Finkle Street was spotted by a delivery driver at 5.15am.

At one stage ten fire engines were mobilised after high winds caused the blaze to spread through the roof void to adjoining properties including a sandwich shop and a beauty salon.

This afternoon four crews remained at the scene from Knaresnorough, Acomb, Ripon and Harrogate.
