Officers are currently investigating the cause of a fire in Bakewell last night as there is chance it could have been started deliberately.

One crew from Bakewell and Buxton joined two crews from Matlock at Shutts Lane at 11pm last night when a single storey wooden building went up in flames.

Firefighters used two breathing apparatus and four hose reel jets to tackle the fire in the building, which measured 30 metres by 40 metres.

Fire crews left the scene by 1am this morning.
