Dozens of firefighters rushed to the former site of Broadmoor psychiatric hospital in Crowthorne, where a huge blaze broke out.

The fire started around 9.30am this morning (May 25).

Crews from Crowthorne, Bracknell, Ascot, Wokingham, Wokingham Road, Whitley Wood, Caversham Road and Slough were scrambled to the scene.

No injuries were reported, although the fire was described as 'well-developed.'

The site of the hospital, in Chaplain's Hill, Crowthorne, has been derelict for years - so no staff or patients were at risk.

As of 3pm, the fire has been brought under control.
