Humberside Fire and Rescue statement

A spokeswoman for Humberside Fire and Rescue confirmed they had three crews in attendance at the fire.

She said: “We are in attendance at Reservoir Road. We could be there for some time.

“There is some general smoke and there has been smoke since around 2.30am. It has had a couple of hours to disperse and we are getting a couple of calls from the area where people can see smoke. We have mechanical diggers in use to dismantle whatever is in there.

“It looks to be general waste that is on fire.”
