Smoke could be seen for miles as a large fire at an industrial estate burned in Carlisle.

Fire crews from Carlisle East and Carlisle West, were mobilised to reports of a scrap yard on fire, at Willowholme, behind the Cumberland Infirmary, at 13:45pm.

The blaze involved a large amount of scrap and waste, with seven fire engines and a water bowser tackling the flames.

People are urged to stay away from the area while emergency services are on site and those living in the area are asked to keep windows closed.
