Merseyside Police has said it believes that a fire has destroyed all vehicles in a multi-storey car park - which has a capacity of 1,600 - next to the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

The Liverpool International Horse Show was cancelled as firefighters tackled the huge blaze next to the venue on Liverpool's waterfront.

Merseyside Police said: "Initial investigations indicate that an accidental fire within a vehicle caused other cars to ignite.

"We believe that all vehicles parked in the car park have been destroyed and advise owners to contact their insurance companies."

No-one has been seriously injured, the force said.
