Crews from London Road, West Bridgford, Eastwood, Newark and Bingham Fire Stations are working to extinguish the fire. We expect to be at the incident for some time.
We ask that members of the public avoid the area, and nearby residents keep their windows and doors closed. Cropwell Road between the A52 and A46 is currently closed.

A structural engineer is in attendance to make sure the building is safe to enter. Four crews remain at the scene, and Cropwell Road remains closed. Thank you for your patience.
