London yard expected to reopen after fire

A metal recycling yard in West London was expected to reopen today after a fire earlier this week.

EMR’s yard in Willesden was due to reopen on Friday 27 April following a fire on Tuesday involving 3,000 tonnes of scrap metal.

About 40 firefighters took several hours to get the blaze in part of the yard in Scrubs Lane under control.

Fire crews from New Malden, Willesden, Park Royal, Chelsea, Hammersmith, Paddington and Bethnal Green fire stations tackled the blaze. Firefighters remained at the scene throughout the night.

No-one was injured and no machinery was damaged. The cause of the fire is unknown.
