Firefighters have released dramatic pictures showing the devastation caused by a blaze at a historic Sheffield chapel.
Flames ripped through Loxley Old Church in Loxley in the early hours of Wednesday morning (August 17).
South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue was called at about 3.15am and three fire engines were dispatched, with firefighters putting out the flames by about 7am.
The fire services said the cause of the fire was ‘under investigation’.
The chapel was built in 1787 and is said to be the oldest building in Loxley. But since closing in 1993, the Grade II-listed church has slipped into a state of dereliction.
