A spokesperson from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said: "We are currently dealing with a fire in a scrapyard off Pimhole Road in Bury.

"Five fire engines are currently in attendance. Firefighters are using two jets to tackle the fire. Please keep your windows and doors shut as a precaution and avoid the area where possible."

The fire service has asked people not to call 999 about the blaze, as five fire engines are already on the scene.

They also say the blaze is approximately 30m x 30m and is reaching around 10m high, but we imagine it has only since expanded.

At the time of writing this, firefighters are using aerial apparatus to tackle the blaze.
