Firefighters have spent the early hours of this morning tackling a blaze that ravaged three floors of a Halifax pub.

Crews were called out to the Ovenden Cross - which is thought to be empty and up for sale - on Ovenden Road in Ovenden at around midnight.

Three fire engines and an aerial platform were needed to deal with the flames, which spread over all three floors of the building and through the roof.

The road was shut for several hours while they tackled the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Crews are expected to be back continuing work there this morning.
