Huge crowds of people had to be evacuated from Xscape this afternoon after a smoke alarm was triggered from one of the complex’s restaurants.

Fire crew were called to Colorado Way shortly before 12.20pm following reports of a small grill pan fire.

Fire engines from Castleford and Normanton stations attended and two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used an extinguisher to put out the flames.
