FIREFIGHTERS are tackling a fire in a Winchester city centre building following reports of a person trapped inside this afternoon.

Four appliances are outside the building on Jewry Street opposite the Theatre Royal. Police and ambulances have also been called just before 3pm.

The emergency has led to the blocking of Jewry Street, a key street in the Winchester one-way system instantly causing gridlock though the city centre.
