Firefighters battled a huge blaze in Manchester after a fire broke out in the city centre on Monday afternoon.
Members of the public were urged to avoid the area near Victoria railway station after the fire broke out at the former CWS building.
Crews were called at about 5.25pm to the city centre and commuters were warned of severe delays.
It is not yet clear whether anyone was hurt, although there are reports that the building was vacant at the time.

Our Air Unit is really helping us fight this fire. It's flying overhead and streaming video to the ground. pic.twitter.com/EfYObTiQEX— Manchester Fire (@manchesterfire) October 12, 2015
