We are continuing to support our colleagues at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service as they tackle a fire at Nottingham railway station today.

We are also appealing for information in relation the fire, as a joint investigation is underway to establish the cause.

Supt Sandra England, leading the British Transport Police response, said: “Our officers have been on the scene at Nottingham railway station all morning supporting Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue firefighters as they deal with the large fire.

“Cordons remain in place around the area with nearby roads closed, and trains are not running. It is likely the station will remain closed all day.

“Fortunately, we have not had any reports of any injuries as a result of the fire.

“A joint investigation is now underway with Nottingham Fire and Rescue Service to establish the cause of the fire. We would like to hear from anyone who has any information– please call us on 0800 40 50 40 as soon as possible.

“We are grateful for the support we have received from the people of Nottingham and ask for your continued patience as we work with Nottinghamshire Police and our colleagues across the emergency services to return the incident to normality as quickly as possible.”
