Fire Forces Liverpool International Horse Show Cancellation

The Liverpool International Horse Show had been set up before the fire was in full swing, but those horses that had been stored in the vehicle park were moved into the arena itself before the fire reached their level.

Twitter user Mike Quek described hearing "lots of explosions" as auto windows imploded.

Clarke said the first sign of the fire was smoke.

Sue Wright, wife of former England and Liverpool soccer star Mark Wright, emerged as one of the heroes of the incident.

A spokeswoman for the Echo Arena said: "We regret to announce that the Liverpool International Horse Show has been cancelled tonight due to a serious fire in the multi-storey auto park on site".
