Crews remain at a Cambridgeshire factory fire directing water into the building 12 hours after fire broke out.

Nine crews from across the county were called to the one-storey factory unit in Station Road, Whittlesey, shortly before 2100 GMT on Monday.

The fire service warned residents living near Fenland District Industrial Estate to stay indoors as a precaution.

Two fire engines and a turntable ladder are still at the factory where gas cylinders and chemicals are stored.
