Fire crews will keep an eye on a derelict building overnight where a large fire broke out this afternoon in the centre of Bristol.

Around twenty firefighters tackled the blaze at a derelict boat shed near Redcliffe Bridge.

They were called to the site just before midday and fire officers believe it started by accident.

They had to treat the incident as if someone was inside as they were unsure if it was being used a squat. Luckily no-one was injured.
