People living close to the scene of a fire at a warehouse in Renny Park Road, Newport Pagnell, are being advised to keep windows and doors shut.

More than 50 firefighters from 10 fire crews are currently tackling the inferno close to Anker International and Waterline after emergency services received a call at around 1.50pm. The fire is thought to be at the Liebherr warehouse.

Witnesses close to the scene said they heard an explosion before flames three storeys high were seen.

An eyewitness, walking through the town, said: “Just went for a walk with husband and happened upon it on our route - must have been not long after it started. By the time we got to London Road, you could feel the heat of the flames which were way above the rooftops.”

Traffic is currently slow moving around the area and fire crews are currently at the scene. Two more specialist crews were also sent to tackle the fire.
