A fire that started at a West Dereham scrap yard on Saturday morning has now been extinguished.

The blaze, which was at Glazewing recycling park on Station Road, was put out by 7.45pm on Wednesday.

A spokeswoman for West Norfolk Council said that the waste pile had been completely moved, quenched and relocated to storage bays or skips on site.

It comes after complaints earlier in the week from nearby residents who said the air quality had been affecting their health.

The spokeswoman added that air quality assessments at Roxham, Hilgay and Southery had shown that no smoke or odour was now being emitted from the site.

An investigation is ongoing to find the cause of the fire.
