Firefighters have been at Abbeydale Road in Sheffield this morning after a wheelie bin fire spread to two gas meters.

Crews attended the blaze at the junction with Miller Road at around 5.10am after dealing with a car fire that had occurred further along Abbeydale Road.

The area, close to a shop with a flat above, was closed off while firefighters waited for National Grid workers to attend.

The workers dug up the pavement and isolated the gas supply to extinguish the flames.
