The car park at Nottingham Railway Station has reopened hours after a major fire broke out.

It was closed shortly after the fire broke out at the railway station at around 6.25am today (January 12).

Some motorists whose cars were already inside were allowed to get them out but Nottingham City Council later said the car park would shut and remain closed until further notice.

Fire at Nottingham railway station

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service confirmed the blaze had been put out and the incident was being scaled back at around 5.50pm on Friday.

Shortly after, National Rail tweeted to say the car park was open and that motorists could collect their cars.

The fire, which is thought to have started in a toilet in a new extension on the Queen's Road side of the station, before spreading to the roof, is being treated as arson.
