Marine flare explodes at Waterbeach recycling centre

A worker at a recycling centre had a shock when a marine flare went off in his hands as he picked it up from a conveyor belt.

It happened at Amey's plant in Waterbeach, near Cambridge, in November.

The footage has been released by the firm to remind people to consider what they are recycling this Christmas.
