Fire bosses say a blaze that has gutted a building in Hanley was started deliberately.

Crews were called to the incident on Clough Street, near its junction with Mersey Street, last night (30 May).

At its height, more than 20 firefighters tackled the blaze.

They have been damping down throughout the day, but are now leaving the scene.

The incident will be left with the police.
