He said: "Unfortunately, the fire is spreading to the roof of the new section of Nottingham train station, and is now travelling along the concourse of the area across the main lines into Nottingham train station".

"Our current advice to customers is not to travel to or from Nottingham station this morning".

The fire broke out in the main concourse and spread to the roof.

This is disrupting our trains on the Nottingham/London St Pancras Matlock/Nottingham/Newark, Nottingham/Mansfield/Worksop, Leicester/Lincoln/Grimbsy, Nottingham/Grantham/Skegness and Liverpool/Nottingham/Norwich routes.

Mills said firefighters are using thermal imaging to make sure this fire is out because "crews can't physically see the orange flames we are trying to fight".

- All trains to and from Nottingham are cancelled until further notice.

Firefighters were working in "arduous conditions" and it would take a "considerable amount of time" for them to bring the fire under control, he added.
