Readers’ pictures: Your photos of the Rackheath Industrial Estate fire

More than 60 firefighters are at the scene of a blaze at Rackheath Industrial Estate.

The fire, which has ripped through a company called PHS Data Shred, was reported just before 8.50am today (Wednesday).

As of 11.30am 13 engines are at the scene of the blaze, with ambulances on stand-by, although it is not believed that anybody has been injured.

The entrance to the industrial estate has been closed to all but emergency vehicles, with about 30 people, some of whom are understood to work at PHS Data Shred, behind a cordon.

Eyewitnesses said flames could be seen licking through the windows of the large two-storey building and that the back of it appeared to have collapsed.

When the blaze broke out, dozens of our readers were quick to get their cameras out and take some photos.

Here is a selection of the pictures taken by some of you.
