A blaze at a Leicestershire factory which started four days ago has finally been extinguished by firefighters.

Crews were called to the printing works on Kingsfield Road in Barwell on Saturday afternoon.

Teams working to demolish the building had discovered smouldering hotspots after the main fire was put out.

Several roads were closed and residents in Barwell and Earl Shilton had been advised to keep their windows shut. An investigation will begin on Wednesday.

Efforts to dampen down were held up after wind caused small fires to start among the debris.

No-one was injured during the blaze.
