The blaze started just before noon today, and has now spread to a recycling yard and industrial units in Tunnel Avenue.

Plumes of smoke has caused nearby roads including Millenium Way and Brood Street to be closed, and a huge area surrounding the fire has been cordoned off because of gas cylinders there.

People living in the area have been advised to keep doors and windows closed due to the smoke.

Studio 338 was due to host the likes of Regression Sessions, Idiot Savant, and Space Ibiza: London Beach Fiesta in the next few weeks, but there are now concerns that these events may be cancelled. However, no official announcements have been made yet.
