A derelict mill went up in flames last night.

Firefighters from Dewsbury, Ossett, Cleckheaton and Wakefield were called to the old mill on Wakefield Road in Earlsheaton at around 10.10pm.

Around half of the building had caught fire.

Five large jets and an aerial pump were used to control the blaze.
