Eight fire crews are tackling a blaze at a warehouse in Cambridgeshire, with a witness reporting hearing an "explosion".

The fire at the Masters Logistical site off the A10, between Stretham and Ely, began at about 14:00 BST.

The A10 has been shut between the A1123 Wilburton Road and the A142 at Ely, police said.

Eyewitness Ellee Seymour tweeted: "An explosion in my village. Terrifying large crackling sounds."

The fire service is advising nearby residents to keep their windows and doors shut due to black smoke pouring from the site.
