Pictures and a video have been released showing for the aftermath of the fire at Liverpool’s Waterfront Car Park. The New Year’s Eve blaze lasted almost 12 hours and took more than 20 fire crews to bring under control.

Unprecedented in its nature, the fire spread throughout the multi-storey car park, which sits within the ACC Liverpool complex, causing extensive damage that the insurance industry estimates will result in claims worth more than £20m.
