Fire crews are spending a third day at industrial park in Flintshire following a major blaze.

Crews were called to burning recycling waste on River Lane Industrial Estate, Saltney, on Tuesday morning.

The blaze has since been contained but North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said firefighters were damping down at the scene.

At its height, 25 firefighters fought the flames and an aerial platform ladder from Wrexham was used.

A fire engine from Deeside and a high volume pump from Llandudno remain at the scene.

An environmental protection system has also been deployed to protect the nearby River Dee from pollution.

Public Health Wales advised residents earlier this week to stay indoors and close doors and windows if smoke was visible at ground level.
