Fire crews battle scrapyard blaze in Wiltshire

More than 40 firefighters are tackling a large fire at a scrapyard in Wiltshire.

Fire crews were called to Swindon Metal Solutions, also known as Rayners Breakers at Thornhill, near Broad Town, at about 15:00 BST.

A fire brigade spokesman said about 100 scrap cars were "well alight".

BBC reporter Catherine Powell said she could see a thick plume of black smoke from more than 25 miles away.
