Firefighters battling a huge scrapyard fire near Dobwalls since yesterday say they are making "steady progress".

Nine crews from Cornish towns were at the scene after a string of calls to 999 at around 2pm on Thursday.

Relief crews from across the county have been used over night and four fire engines remain at the scene working to dampen down the blaze.

Some roads remain closed, and emergency services expect to stay on the scene well into today.
