100 firefighters fight the fire at the Peaky Blinders film location

More than 100 firefighters battle a blaze at a historic mill used as a filming location for Peaky Blinders and Downton Abbey.

Flames and black smoke could be seen above Dalton Mills in Keighley.

The West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said 20 pumps were dispatched to the building just before midday.

Bradford Council said it opened the city’s leisure center to provide shelter to residents affected by the fire that has engulfed the entire listed building.

Firefighters have urged residents to keep windows and doors closed and not travel through the area because of the smoke.

The Victorian building is said to have been the largest textile mill in Yorkshire, employing around 2,000 workers.

It has been used as a filming location in the hit BBC series Peaky Blinders, as well as The Great Train Robbery, Downton Abbey and the 2016 film The Limehouse Golem starring Bill Nighy.
