Nine crews were sent to the former Burnside freezing works when the blaze broke out in a car repair workshop at 9.45am on Tuesday.

Black smoke triggered the evacuation of the four-storey concrete complex that houses a number of car wrecking and restoring businesses.

The Fire Service said it has been told there were squatters living in the building and is investigating the cause of the blaze.
