A huge fire has ripped through a fast-food restaurant in Leicester.

The blaze at Big John’s in Humberstone Road was reported at about 07:30 GMT.

The road was closed between Dysart Way and St Georges Way and police had advised motorists to find alternative routes.

Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service said it received a number of calls to the blaze and the fire was “well-established” in the kitchen and store room.

Four fire engines, an aerial ladder platform and a command support unit were sent to the blaze.

Humberstone Road has now reopened in both directions.
