Residents were evacuated from a block of flats in Langley Green earlier this morning (May 11) after a gas fed fire broke out in the building.

Two crews from Crawley and one from Horsham were sent to Squirrel Close at around 11.30am.

The fire was discovered in the first floor ceiling of the block and firefighters evacuated residents as a safety precaution.

It was extinguished using two breathing apparatus and one hose reel and the ceiling was checked over by crews before allowing residents back into the property.
