A large fire on an industrial estate in Fife has been brought under control but diversions around the site are still in force, police have said.

The blaze at the Production Glass Fibre plant in Kirkcaldy's Mitchelson Industrial Estate started at 1600 GMT.

Nearby residents were told to keep windows and doors closed as a precaution.

That advise has now been lifted but residents in the Wemyss Villages have been asked to avoid the area.
