A major road between Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire has been closed while firefighters deal with a blaze at a wood recycling centre.

The fire in a large pile of wood chippings at Bridge Foot Quarry at Flint Cross near the A505 started at about 22:15 GMT on Thursday.

The A505 remains closed between junction 10 of the M11 at Duxford and the A10 at Royston.

One fire engine from Cambridge remains at the scene.
