Thirty five firefighters have been tackling a large fire which broke out earlier today at a waste recycling site in Scunthorpe.

Six fire engines were called to Ellgia Waste Management on Winterton Road just after 9 this morning after seventy five tonnes of cardboard caught light.

Motorists were advised to take care as smoke blew across the road.
