Recycling Lives tweeted: “We’re continuing to work alongside the emergency services to deal with a fire at our Preston Recycling Park tonight. We are grateful to Lancs Fire and Rescue’s teams and our own, who are implementing our critical event protocols.”

Last night residents were advised to stay indoors due to large volumes of smoke in the area.
