The owners of a what is claimed to be the UK's oldest nightclub say it will remain open despite a large fire.

Firefighters were called to the Acapulco club in Halifax when the blaze broke shortly before it opened last night.

All the staff were evacuated and no-one was hurt. In a message on social media, the owners said the club, which opened in 1961, had been saved thanks to the quick actions of the emergency services.
