A flat above a city centre pub was gutted by a fire last night.
The blaze broke out in the Talbot and Falcon, on Northgate, just before 11pm.
Crew commander Dave Bastow, from Wakefield Fire Station, said: “The flat was completely gutted by the fire - is was quite an intense fire.”
Police were standing guard outside the pub this morning as investigations into the cause of the fire were carried out.
