Firefighters are still at the scene of a fire at a recycling centre in Worksop.

The fire at the recycling centre in Shireoaks Road broke out at 5am yesterday (Sunday) morning.

At its peak there were 10 fire engines at the site, battling the blaze which started in a building used for storing recycling material.

Fire crews are continuing to dampen down the scene.

Shireoaks Road and Sandy Lane were closed for the majority of yesterday, but are now fully reopened.

This is the second fire at the centre after a fire broke out in August last year which took more than a month to be completely extinguished.
