Firefighters used water from the Leeds Liverpool canal to tackle a massive blaze at a chemical recycling plant. Around fifteen fire engines were called to the scene at Tradpak on Albion Way in the early hours of this morning (Monday April 21, 2014).
The fire spread to an adjacent packaging company. The fire has now been contained but fire crews are expected to remain on the scene for the rest of the day.
