A fork lift truck is thought to have exploded at a warehouse in Bradford this afternoon (Monday).

Firefighters were called to a blast at Range Storage and Material Handling Equipment in Parry Lane at around 4.40pm, which West Yorkshire Fire Service said had caused the building to partially collapse.

No-one is thought to have been injured and two people reported missing have now been accounted for.

About 25 firefighters were called to the warehouse, while roads were closed in the area and nearby buildings were evacuated.
