Langley scrapyard fire closes main road

A fire at a scrapyard in a Hertfordshire village has caused a main road to be closed.

Emergency services were called to London Road in Langley, Hitchin, at about 0500 BST. It is believed more than 50 firefighters are at the scene.

Police said the fire was at a scrapyard and scrap metal and cars had caught alight.

A plume of smoke meant the B656 has been closed at the junction of the A651, a spokeswoman said.
