"This sight is caused by intense heat rising from the ground, and turbulent wind conditions", officials from Leicestershire's fire department said on Twitter.

The fire began just after 1.40am yesterday and took the firefighters 12 hours to get under control.

Fire crews from Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Staffordshire responded to the fire at the Ravensbourn factory on Occupation Lane in Swadlincote.
