West Belfast waste plant fire 'could burn for 24 hours'

A fire that broke out at a recycling plant in west Belfast on Wednesday could take up to 24 hours to be fully extinguished, Northern Ireland's chief fire officer says.

Several fire engines and about 30 firefighters are still battling the fire at the Wastebeater facility on the Blackstaff Road, off Kennedy Way.

People living near the facility have been advised to keep their doors and windows closed.

BBC Newsline's Catherine Morrison reports from the scene.
