More than 70 firefighters tackled a blaze that damaged a Sikh temple in Manchester.

The blaze ripped through a multi-use building in the Strangeways area of Cheetham Hill at 2330 BST on Wednesday.

The ground floor offices and the first floor, which was home to the temple, were severely damaged in the fire.

Firefighters tackled the blaze throughout the night. An investigation is under way but the fire is not thought to be suspicious.
