Bristol shopping complex 18th December 2016

Thousands of people were evacuated from Bristol's biggest shopping during the busiest weekend of the year due to a blaze in a store room.

Flames broke out in a back store room of Cribbs Causeway at around 4:18pm but the fire was extinguished by the store's sprinklers before fire fighters arrived.

Thousands of shoppers making a last dash for their Christmas presents were then asked to leave immediately.

Crews attended from Patchway and the cause of the blaze will now be investigated.
