Investigations have started into why a car dealership in Durham caught fire.

The blaze started first thing yesterday morning at the Evans Halshaw Renault showroom in Gilesgate Moor.

Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue say they've had to wait until today for enquiries to begin as the building hadn't cooled enough.
