The director of Drury’s Environmental Services, Kevin Robotham, said residents in North Walsham should not be alarmed and the fire is “under control”.

“The fire brigade advised us that there will be fires on the site with visible flames and smoke for some time,” he said.

“The best way for the fire to extinguish is for it to burn itself out and while that happens members of the public will continue to see visible signs of a fire.

“At the moment there are two or three piles of waste still burning and from the outside it may look like the whole place is still alight but it is under control and has been left under the guidance of the fire brigade.”

It took 60 firefighters to get the fire under control after it ignited in the company’s waste recycling warehouse on Saturday evening. No one was injured.
