A fire at an industrial unit in Leicestershire has destroyed several vehicles.

The fire at the yard on Swepstone Road in Heather near Ashby-de-la-Zouch was reported just before 14:00 BST on Saturday.

No-one was injured in the fire but Leicestershire police said it caused serious traffic congestion in the area.

Swepstone Road was closed off while six fire crews tackled the blaze.

Police Inspector Martin Hall said: "If anyone feels that they are suffering from the effects of smoke inhalation they should seek medical advice."
