Emergency services are still at Silloth Airfield this morning which was the scene of a blaze last night.

Six fire appliances from Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service and a specialist water bowser from Penrith were in attendance at the airfield.

The cause of the fire is currently not known but it took place in a former aircraft hangar where a large amount of plastic was found to be smouldering.

Firefighters issued a plea to the public at the time to avoid the area and to keep doors and windows closed if they live nearby.
