Emergency services have dealt with a fire at a rubber factory in Plymouth.

Two fire crews were called to the single-storey building on the Bellever Way industrial estate in the Roborough area of the city at about 1150 GMT.

They found smoke coming from a silo containing stretched rubber which is used in the production of rubber powder.

Part of the silo was severely damaged, the fire service said. The cause is believed to be accidental.
