A road in Ossett looks set to stay closed until the weekend after a huge blaze at a mill.

More than 50 firefighters were called to tackle the fire at the Fudge Jeans factory on Queen Street at 10.40pm last Thursday.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said the fire started in a fuse box next to the main building.

The mill is in danger of collapsing and will have to be demolished.

As a result, Queen Street will remain closed until at least the weekend.
