Footage has emerged of smoke billowing from the Santiago Bernabeu, home of Spanish football team Real Madrid.

The fire is believed to have been started by a piece of insulation material that caught fire during some welding work.

Footage began to emerge late last night on social media of the blaze, with local news outlet Marca reported that the fire was small and was able to be contained by a number of construction workers.

The stadium has been under renovation since 2019 as part of a £700m redevelopment plan that will modernise the famous building.

The planned renovation is expected to take at least another two years.
