Dramatic footage shows the extent of a blaze that broke out at a Gateshead recycling centre.
The footage shows smoke billowing from the roof of Campground Waste and Recycling Centre on Sunday.
Crews were called to Springwell Road in Wrekenton at around 2.28am and were battling the fire throughout the day.
Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service said firefighters would remain on scene for some time.
No one was injured as a result of the fire.
Northumbria Police closed the road and also urged members of the public to avoid the area.
The facility and the adjacent Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) will both remain closed until they are deemed safe to reopen.
A spokesperson for SUEZ recycling and recovery UK said an investigation will now be launched to determine the cause of the fire.
It is believed that the fire occurred in the building that contains non-hazardous general household waste collected through the weekend.
A spokesperson for SUEZ recycling and recovery UK said: "At approximately 02:30 this morning (Sunday), we were alerted to the presence of a fire in the main general refuse processing building at our Campground waste transfer station on Springwell Road in Wrekenton, Gateshead.
"The fire service attended the site within 10 minutes and remains in attendance today, managing the fire. SUEZ staff have been on site throughout the morning assisting the fire service.
"Fortunately, no one has been injured, but both the transfer station and adjacent Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) will remain closed until the fire service deems it safe to reopen.
"All vehicle deliveries to the site are being rerouted and residents are asked to use Cowen Road HWRC in Blaydon, NE21 5TW.
"The fire occurred in a building which contains non-hazardous general household waste collected from the recycling centres over the weekend.
"The Environment Agency has been informed and are on site monitoring the situation.
"We would like to thank Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service for their continued efforts to manage the fire and we apologise for the disruption to our neighbours and the local community.
"The cause of the fire and the extent to which the facility has been damaged remain unknown but will be subject to investigation in due course.
