A major blaze has broken out at the Primark store in Belfast city centre.

But this is exactly what a busker in Belfast chose to sing as the Primark behind her burned in a fire.

Emergency services attended the scene of a huge fire at a scrap metal recycling factory in Limerick overnight.

The inferno erupted at the bargain clothes shop in Belfast this morning, causing shoppers to flee from the shop in the city's Bank Building.

He expressed "concerns" over the structural integrity of the building, with part of it "prone to collapse" and said a 30-metre cordon had been established for that reason.

The blaze has now torn through every storey of the building.

The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service said the fire is on the 5th floor of the now evacuated building and that 11 appliances are at the scene.

Primark is among the famous old Bank Buildings of Belfast, which were designed by Sir Robert Taylor.

There were no initial reports of injuries but that has yet to be confirmed by authorities.

Flames engulfed the roof of the structure, destroying the rooftop clock, before spreading through the five-story building.

A major refurbishment of the store had only recently taken place.

"The Bank Building is a very important part of the city's architectural heritage and is loved by many". Buildings like these help give Belfast its unique identity and character. We can only hope that the damage is not too severe and that the building can be saved'.

"This building has survived bombs and fire before".

Primark said the shop was evacuated safely.
