Explosion fears at industrial fire in Buckinghamshire

Smoke billowing from the fire at Wing Smoke billowed from the fire at the industrial unit

A cordon remained in place overnight at the scene of an industrial estate fire in Buckinghamshire over fears that oxy-acetylene cylinders could explode.

More than 40 firefighters have been tackling the blaze off Cublington Road, Wing, near Leighton Buzzard, which broke out at about 15:30 GMT.

Crews have since been scaled down, but the fire continued to be doused overnight with a 150m cordon in place.

One man has been treated for the effects of smoke inhalation.
