There were scenes of utter devastation in Blackley on Wednesday night (April 3) after a 'famous' north Manchester venue burnt down in a huge blaze.

A major emergency services presence descended on White Moss Road shortly before 8.30pm when the former Vasa Club building erupted into flames.

Eight fire engines, along with assistance from police, flooded the scene and cordoned off nearby roads. Local residents were urged to keep their windows and doors closed as smoke filled the air, with others told to 'avoid the area' by the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service.
