A number of cars and a showroom have been destroyed by a fire in West Yorkshire.

More than 30 firefighters from across West Yorkshire tackled the fire which broke out at the Motorzone used car showroom, in Pontefract on Saturday night.

It is thought damage will run to tens of thousands of pounds.

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service scrambled fire crews from Garforth, Gipton, Wakefield, Castleford, Featherstone, Normanton and Pontefract.

Police have been been standing guard at the building in Horsefair. The road was closed off for much of the night.

Fire investigators have been on site trying to establish the cause of the blaze.
