MANEA Road in Wimblington is still closed following a fire at plastics recycling centre Plasgran yesterday (Wednesday).

Huge plumes of smoke filled the sky over Fenland as fire crews fought the blaze throughout late afternoon and evening, with Wimblington residents urged to keep their doors and windows closed.

The fire was reported at around 3pm and was under control by 11pm, although one fire engine remains at the scene this morning (Thursday).

A fire investigation team is expected to look into the cause of the fire later today.

Roger Rawson of RLR Photography, Fleur de Lys Photography, and Citizen photographer Alan Miller have taken photos of the fire from various points across Fenland, some from as far away as Guyhirn.
