A HUGE scrap tyre fire in Bradford, which first erupted at the start of this week, has reportedly reignited.

The blaze broke out at a former go-kart track, off Spring Mill Street, in the city centre, just after 3am on Monday morning.

Almost 100 firefighters and 15 fire engines rushed to the scene and tackled huge flames emanating from the mass of tyres.

The fire has wreaked havoc across Bradford throughout the week, with roads closed and schools and businesses shut due to the "acrid smoke" coming from the fire.

There were no trains whatsoever running from Bradford Interchange until Thursday.
