Train services suspended after fire erupts at Nottingham station


LONDON: The train services have been cancelled after a huge fire broke out at  Nottingham railway station on Friday.

As per reports, flames were seen coming from the station's roof and smoke filled the foyer, prompting the building's evacuation to avert causalities. 

More than 10 fire crews have fighting to  tackle the blaze which caused panic among the travelers since it began on Friday afternoon.

British  media quoted an official saying; "We now have reason to believe the fire may have been started deliberately," adding cordons remain in place around the area and trains are not running, which likely to remain closed for the rest of the day.

Describing the operation as difficult and protracted, another official said  that the  crews faced "arduous" conditions when they arrived to tackle the "severe" fire that spread across the concourse.

Meanwhile British Transport Police said it was an "ongoing incident" and said the station was "unlikely" to be open by Saturday.
