Fire fighters rescued a man from a building after a fire broke out in the kitchen of flats in Nottingham in the early hours of this morning.

At around 3am today (Sunday, October 29) the alarm was raised at the premises in the Sherwood Rise end of Berridge Road in Forest Fields, after a call was made to the fire service to report a smell of smoke.

So just how scary IS Nottingham's most famous ghost walk?

Crews from Arnold and Stockhill stations arrived to find a fire had started in the ground-floor kitchen of a three-storey block of flats.
