Crews from four fire engines and a turntable ladder tackled the fire close to Rose Green Road.

"Three main jets were used to tackle the fire which is believed to have involved 10 cars and a caravan at the scrapyard.

"The fire, which is thought to have started accidentally, caused a large plume of smoke which was visible across the city.
