A MAJOR road has reopened following a fire at a waste recycling plant in Shipley

Firefighters are still at the scene at AWM, Valley Road, this morning and are likely to remain there for the rest of the day and overnight as there are still "hot spots". 

Crews were called to the site at around 2.30am yesterday morning.

At the height of the fire, 15 fire engines from across the brigade were at the scene along with two aerial appliances and support pumps.

Plumes of smoke could still be seen as dawn broke and residents were advised to keep their doors and windows closed.

A West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said "pretty much 100 per cent" of the building was involved in the fire and it had been "substantially damaged". 

A structural engineer visited the scene yesterday.

One onlooker said "thick, acrid" smoke was hanging over the area. 

Two crews are now at the site, a spokesperson for the brigade said, and will meet with Council contractors today as the building is "unstable". 

Reader Michael Robinson sent this video of the aftermath of the fire. 

The fire caused major disruption on the roads and rail on Saturday. 

All lines were blocked between the Bradford Forster Square and Shipley stations, but eventually reopened later in the afternoon.
