Firefighters are still at the scene of a massive blaze at a factory in Barwell, which started yesterday.
Emergency crews were called to Kingsfield Road at 3pm yesterday after reports that the industrial building was on fire.
About 50 firefighters spent more than seven hours bringing the blaze at the two-storey 20m by 70m building under control as thick smoke billowed across the village with the flames visible from miles around.
Police cordoned of surrounding streets and some nearby homes were evacuated because of concerns about chemicals in the property.
This morning, firefighters remained at the scene damping down.
A number of roads remain closed - including Shilton Road, between the King Street junction and the Hill Street junction and Arthur Street.
Firefighters were due to launch their investigation into the cause of the blaze this morning.
Some nearby homes had their electricity cut off yesterday as the emergency services fought the fire but supplies have now been restored. Video: Phill Ludbrook
