AN INVESTIGATION is underway into the cause of the huge fire on Beverley’s Swinemoor Industrial Estate in the early hours of Saturday morning. At the height of the blaze, which broke out around 4am, there were seven appliances tackling the flames, with concerns about a nearby 4,000-litre fuel storage container. A drone was also deployed to provide aerial imagery to allow fire crews to monitor the fire from above.

A fire service spokesperson said the fire, believed to be centred on the Addplant machinery hire premises, involved gas cylinders and there had been reports from people in Beverley being woken by the sound of explosions. A number of vehicles parked near by were destroyed. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the incident.

FULL DETAILS of this week’s Made in East Yorkshire Christmas Market, which will be held in Saturday Market on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, were released this morning. An array of festive entertainment and activities including the Yorkshire Oompah Band (Friday 4pm – 6pm) are planned throughout the three days on the lead up to the Festival of Christmas which will be returning for a 26th year on Sunday. The market will also feature a number of local school choirs, carol singers and shire horses taking Santa around Saturday market.
