A fire has broken out at South Africa’s parliament in Cape Town.

Flames could be seen and a column of smoke rose into the sky early on Sunday morning.

The blaze began in third floor offices and spread to the National Assembly chamber, local fire service spokesman Jermaine Carelse said.

No one has been injured, Mr Carelse added.

The roof area also caught light, and 35 firefighters are on the scene.
