Firefighters remain at a recycling centre in Rotherham which went up in flames yesterday and led to the evacuation of residents from their homes.

The blaze at Universal Recycling, Wharf Road, Kilnhurst, broke out at 10am yesterday and thick, black smoke could be seen for miles.

As a precaution, residents were advised to stay away from the area and to find alternative accommodation last night.

This morning four fire engines remain at the scene.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
