Fire crews are continuing to tackle a large blaze at a recycling centre in Leeds.

It broke out at HW Martin Waste Plant in Beeston at around 1:30am. At its height, 80 fire fighters worked to extinguish the processed plastic and paper that were alight. No-one was hurt. An investigation into how the fire started has now begun.
