Fire crews have tackled a large blaze inside a warehouse at Grangemouth industrial estate.

The alarm was raised by a passer-by just before 0400 BST.

The member of the public spotted smoke from the roof of the Oran recycling plant on the Abbotsinch industrial estate on Bo'ness Road.

Six fire engines and an aerial platform were used. Firefighters needed to break into the premises to access the fire but no-one was hurt in the incident.

Oran Environmental Solutions said its facility had been partially damaged by the fire but was already back to normal operations.

A spokesman for the company added: "It is too early to comment on the cause of the incident. An investigation has been initiated by the company and a report will be available in due course."
