Firefighters tackle Biggleswade recycling centre blaze
Up to 50 firefighters tackled a blaze that broke out in a recycling warehouse on a Bedfordshire industrial estate.
Crews were called to the unit in Cow Close, near the A1 in Biggleswade, at about 21:30 BST on Wednesday.
Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue said it had "difficulty in gaining access to the site, with limited water supplies" but two water carriers were brought in.
Group commander Andy Draper said the blaze was brought under control just before midnight.
It was extinguished by 09:00 BST on Thursday. One crew remains at the scene damping down.
The fire service said the single-storey building contained "mixed materials" and 40% of the building was damaged by fire.
The cause is currently unknown and an investigation is under way.
