Emergency services have dealt with a large fire in Pickering.

The incident happened at around 1.50pm in Westbourne Grove, a cul-de-sac off Middleton Road, Pickering.

A commercial property and a number of nearby residential properties are on fire. A number of homes have been evacuated and local residents are being moved to safety at the local memorial hall.

Middleton Road was closed and members of the public were  being urged to avoid the area while emergency services work at the scene.

The A170 was closed for a time but North Yorkshire Police report the road is now open. 

UPDATE: The incident in #Pickering was brought to a safe conclusion at around 4.45pm. No-one was injured during the incident & residents have returned to their homes.  Roads are now open & emergency services have left the scene. Thank you to everyone for their patience.
