The fire broke out at an industrial yard in Hale Fen off the A10 but there are no reported casualties

Fire chiefs urged residents to keep doors and windows closed because of the smoke coming from the blaze.

Station commander Danny Kelly posted an update on the fire on Twitter. He said plumes of smoke were heading in a north westerly direction.

Part of the A10 was closed by police and diversions put in place.
