Dalton Mills dates back to the 19th century and was once the largest textile mill in Yorkshire, employing over 2,000 workers.

It has since been used as a filming location for many TV series such as The Great Train Robbery, Peaky Blinders and Downton Abbey.

Bradford Council has set up a rest centre in the town's leisure centre for people affected by the fire.

Keighley & Ilkley MP Robbie Moore said the fire is "extremely concerning" and has thanked the emergency services.
