A HUGE blaze continues to burn today at the site of a meat factory in Lowestoft.

Roads surrounding Wessex Foods factory remain closed this morning after fire broke out on Sunday evening.

Almost 100 firefighters from across Suffolk tackled the huge blaze and crews are still on scene as smoke continues to billow from the middle of the building.

The fire burned throughout the centre of the building yesterday as fifteen fire crews from across the county fought the worst of the flames, which had taken hold of the single-storey meat production factory.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said Hadenham Road and Tower Road would stay closed today and nearby residents are advised to “shut all windows and doors as necessary.”
