Two bodies have been discovered after a fire in Manchester’s Chinatown, police have confirmed.

A number of roads in the city centre were blocked by the fleet of fire engines sent to tackle the flames, in the Chinatown area at 2.15am.

Firefighters were initially forced to keep back from the multi-storey commercial building, due to falling debris.

Crews and dogs searched the building once the fire was under control, amid fears that homeless people were sleeping inside.

The blaze was under control by around 6am although Portland Street, Princess Street and Faulkner Street remained closed.

A joint investigation with the fire service is in its early stages and Police are carrying out a number of enquiries to establish how the fire started.

Any Information can be passed on to police by calling 101 and quoting incident number 146 of 25 November 2016 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
