A man was pulled from a burning building Gloucester in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Fire crews were called out by police officers who saw a building in Tredworth Road, in Tredworth, ablaze at 1.30am.

People were feared to have become trapped in the building so three fire crews were dispatched - one from Gloucester South Station and two from Gloucester North Station.

Two teams, wearing breathing apparatus, entered the building, searching the ground floor, first floor and second floor.

The man was rescued from the property and paramedics from the Great Western Ambulance Service treated him at the scene.

The incident was cleared by fire officers after one hour and 10 minutes.
