Cause of Llandow recycling plant fire still unknown

Fire investigators are still trying to find the cause of a massive blaze that has destroyed a recycling plant in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The fire at the Siteserv plant in Llandow is now under control, but is still likely to burn for a couple of days.

Residents in the area have been told to keep doors and windows closed because there is a risk of asbestos. But the fire service say that today's rain means it will not cause a danger to the public.

Richard Morgan reports.

'No asbestos' in fire-damaged part of Llandow site

The fire... involves approximately 1,000 tonnes of non-hazardous mixed household waste.

At a multi-agency emergency meeting on Wednesday, 6 November 2013, involving South Wales Fire & Rescue Service, South Wales Police, Public Health Wales, Natural Resources Wales and the Vale of Glamorgan Council, it was confirmed that although a small amount of asbestos is present in the roof of the affected building, the roof remains intact.

The fire has resulted in a smoke plume, likely to contain fine dust particles and products of combustion.

An acrid smell has also been reported in the area. Members of the public in the surrounding area are being advised to keep doors and windows closed as a precaution.

Air and water quality will be assessed to determine any potential impact on local health and the environment.
