"Station Street, Carrington Street and Queen's Road have been closed by Nottinghamshire Police while Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and British Transport Police deal with the incident, which was reported at around 6.30am".

Several roads surrounding the station have also been closed, so traffic may be heavier than usual in the city.

A spokeswoman for East Midlands Ambulance Service said it is aware of the incident.

East Midlands Trains, which manages the station, posted a tweet advising commuters to stay away from the station and check its website for updates.

Trains from London St Pancras International will terminate at East Midlands Parkway instead of Nottingham.

A huge fire which caused "substantial damage" to Nottingham railway station and required more than 60 firefighters to bring under control is being treated as arson. This means we have no service from the Forest to Clifton South or Toton Lane.

Initially it was hoped that the station would reopen within 30 minutes of the fire being reported but it developed further leading to travel chaos.

"Our current advice to customers is not to travel to or from Nottingham station this morning".
