Crews were first called at 4.42pm and were on scene eight minutes later. "We just grabbed the keys and ran".

Merseyside Police said initial investigations indicated that an "accidental fire within a vehicle caused other cars to ignite".

On the Facebook page of the Liverpool International Horse Show, its organisers said they had decided with "considerable regret" to cancel the evening show because of the fire.

"I've got very disappointed children because they've got all their horse-riding gear in the boot and they're having a new horse so we'll have to get it again. We were in our minibus and one of the kids shouted, 'there's a fire!'"

Photos taken in the aftermath of a huge fire which gutted a auto park, destroying about 1,300 vehicles, have been released.

Those attending the event shared posts online saying the show had been cancelled.

"You could hear cars popping and exploding: every five or 10 seconds there was an explosion".

Motorists who had travelled to a horse show at the arena were left stranded and residents living nearby had to spend New Year's Eve in a temporary shelter as their apartments were evacuated. "All people and horses are safe and secure, and I thank spectators, riders and support teams for their understanding and co-operation during what was a hard situation", the show's president, Nina Barbour, said on Facebook.

"The people of Liverpool never let us down with their generosity and everyone has now been accommodated or given a lift", Anderson said.

Some 1400 vehicles were inside the structure when the blaze started on Sunday afternoon (Monday morning NZT).

"Bottom line is, this is something we will look at - we will take his advice and other people's advice, and if there's things we can do to make the vehicle parks more safer then that is exactly what we will do".

No-one has been seriously injured, it added.
