Fire crews were called to the scene of a dramatic blaze at Avon Metals in Bristol Road in Gloucester yesterday morning.

Calls came in to the control room at 9.24am.

Speaking at the time a spokesman from nearby motorcycle dealership Frasers of Gloucester said: "The fire brigade have just turned up, we can see smoke and flames. It looks quite big."

Steve Munnock, of Avon Metals, said: "We have 50 staff on the site and three foundries. It looks like it was one of the foundries which caught fire next to our offices. We don't know exactly what has happened yet, but the damage looks extensive.
