Flintshire fire: Residents tells of blasts shaking windows

A resident near the scene of a huge factory fire in Flintshire explains how his windows have been shaking during a series of more than 50 explosions.

Fire crews are tackling a blaze at recycling and coathanger factory at the Greenfield Business Park near Holywell, which is causing road and rail disruption.

The fire service said the explosions were caused by pressurised vessels in the fire.

Elfyn Pierce Jones, who runs a wildlife shelter nearby, told Nelli Bird of BBC Radio Wales about the incident and the action he has had to take to protect his animals.
