Crews are still at the scene of a big fire which started yesterday morning at a recycling centre in Haverhill in Suffolk.

Around 50 firefighters were at the site on Homefield Road yesterday after around 150 tonnes of waste caught alight and stayed there overnight.

Some crews will stay there for a second night tonight to keep the fire under control.

They have been working with the Environment Agency today as well as operators of a waste transfer station in Haverhill to protect the environment.

Crews will be going into the building with diggers tomorrow to remove the waste.

People living nearby are still being asked to keep windows and doors shut because of the smoke.

An investigation into the fire is being carried out.
