There were about 80 firefighters and officers tackling a huge blaze in Windsor's Park Street last night.

Emergency services were called at 9.40pm.

Eighteen pumps were at the scene and Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service confirmed there was no risk to Windsor Castle or to any Crown premises.

Pumps from Berkshire and London were at the scene as well as aerial appliances from Hayes, Surrey, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

The property, which was undergoing building work, is opposite the Two Brewers pub and was well alight when the first pumps arrived.

There was a partial collapse of the upper storeys and surrounding scaffolding.

No firefighters have been injured and the scene was cordoned off.

Huge crowds gathered in Windsor town centre to see the fire which could be seen from several miles away. Police were called to keep crowds back from the fire.
