A fire has broken out a recycling plant in Yorkshire with the latest reports suggesting it could involve up to 15,000 tonnes of tyres.
North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said a total of 14 fire engines were at the incident at Sherburn in Elmet, including a high volume pump, which can move large quantities of water over a larger distance than a normal appliance.
Fire engines from West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service were also present.
Crews are using three hose reel jets to tackle the blaze and as well as a water curtain, which is used as a cooling method to try to restrict the spread of the fire.
The site occupier is using a digger to create a fire break.
Reports earlier suggested that just 1,000 tonnes were involved but the blaze spread to 15,000 tonnes over the course of the day.
