There's explosions, and massive flames, down by Green Lane, I can here it in my flat, and driving back before the area is full of thick smoke and burning embers floating around and bits of tyre. Could pop down and get pics but my tea is in the oven...

I went out, and my car is covered in burnt black crap!! I took one pic, but you can't get anywhere near it, the polic have shut off the A41 completely from the tunnel exit/Argyle St roundabout etc... All the traffic is now diverting down Old Chester Road. Its deffo not Green Lane Scrapyard, as I drove past there. Up neaerer Kerr Channs, so petrol station theory could be correct, or possibly Bathers??

Will grab the single pic I took.
