Firefighters battled a blaze at a derelict building in Eastwood yesterday

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service was called to the Eastwood & District Victory club, in Walker Street, Eastwood, at 9pm on Saturday.

The building is a former working men's club - and there are plans for new homes to be built on the site.

Firefighters from Eastwood, Ilkeston and Stockhill stations battled the blaze using four hose reels and a positive pressure ventilation fan.

Crews also used 20 breathing apparatus during the incident.
