Roads are re-opening in Nantwich following the huge blaze at a scrap metal yard on Alvaston Business Park this morning.

The only road still closed is the westbound carriageway of the Nantwich  bypass between Reaseheath and Sainsbury’s roundabout (as at 11.15am Oct 7).

The eastbound carriageway is now open, westbound remains closed to accommodate Cheshire Fire and Rescue and their equipment.

Police are warning that there is still congestion in the area.

Fire crews say the blaze at Garratt’s Metals is now under control and that smoke is dissipating.

But any motorists in the area who can smell smoke should keep their windows closed, said police.
