Fire crews were still at the scene of a major recycling plant blaze today.

Firefighters from the Rastrick station remained at the Wastecare site in Stainland Road, Greetland, almost 24 hours after the blaze broke out.

The fire, which began just after 10am yesterday, ripped through a large warehouse used for recycling commercial and industrial waste.

It is thought it involved batteries that were being recycled and fire crews were confronted with a series of explosions as they fought the blaze for several hours.

The building itself was badly damaged but 75 firefighters from across the county stopped it spreading to other buildings on the North Dean Business Park.

Investigations into the cause are continuing but it is not believed to be suspicious.
