Fire crews who dealt with yesterday’s huge blaze at Ferrybridge Power Station have been praised for their efforts.

At its height, around 75 firefighters from 15 stations across West Yorkshire tackled 100m high flames coming from a tower, which is used to produce gypsum plasterboard - a bi-product from the power industry.

The blaze, which saw plumes of smoke billow across the Five Towns, has caused the partial collapse of a tower at the plant.
