Hundreds of vehicles destroyed in Liverpool car park fire

A horse show has been cancelled and horses and their handlers have been evacuated from a multi-storey car park next to Liverpool’s Echo Arena because of a large fire.

Some 12 fire engines were at the building at King’s Dock in the city centre, which has a capacity of 1,600 vehicles.

The blaze is believed to have started in a Land Rover on the third level of the car park and spread to other cars.

No-one is believed to have been hurt.
