Bryn Coleman, incident commander for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, told BBC Breakfast: "Crews arrived at approximately 6.30am to a significant fire in the new section of the train station".

"It's quite an old building - we believe it's a listed building - and we have fire in hidden voids there so the crews are now working to expose those voids but there is significant damage to the walkways which go across the railway station".

East Midlands Trains advised people not to travel "unless it is absolutely necessary" and said trains "cannot run to/from Nottingham".
