Fire halts charity football match
A charity football match in South Gloucestershire was stopped after a fire broke out in the clubhouse.

Firefighters were called to Mangotsfield United FC on Sunday afternoon after reports of smoke.

One eyewitness told BBC News there was a smell of smoke in the bar and shortly afterwards all lights went out.

The game between BBC Radio Bristol and Gloucestershire County Cricket Club for the Children in Need appeal restarted after the blaze was put out.

It is believed the fire started in the club's boiler room.

No-one is thought to have been hurt and the cause of the blaze is being investigated.

Gloucestershire County Cricket Club eventually won the match by seven goals to Radio Bristol's one.
