Fire crews are damping down after finally bringing a huge blaze at a scrap metal dealers in Nantwich under control.

These pictures show the scale of the incident at Garratt’s Metals, which forced police to close all major roads around the site on Alvaston Business Park.

The A51, A500 bypass, and A530 roads were all closed at one point, causing traffic mayhem for drivers for several hours.

Roads have been re-opening throughout the day, and the number of fire appliances on site has been reduced to two and the aerial appliance.

Now police and fire investigators begin the pain-staking probe into how the blaze started.
