Drove daughter to lime street station this morning and could see huge smoke like clouds. Wasn't sure if it was the power station at Fiddlers Ferry. On the way back towards tunnel looked like over seaforth area so still smouldering ?

Saw similar smoke like clouds over wales yesterday and thought that was the power station at connahs quay--if its still there.

Shocked I was last night when I saw it ... People at the time didn't know if a plane had crashed or what !!!!

At this moment the fire still seems to be the same size as it was last night !!!

Just hope there wasn't any injuries or fatalities !!!

What, exactly, was burning? Surely not scrap iron?

I suppose it WOULD burn if there were enough heat and a good supply of oxygen.

Probably they don't drain the petrol from scrap vehicles so all it would take is a spark ?

I doubt it is all scrap cars. Most of what I've seen is stuff that has been smashed into pretty small chunks, so any petrol would long since have evaporated.

I expect we'll find ou in due course what was actually burning.

Whatever it is that's burning it absolutely stinks! Can smell it over here in New Brighton and to me it smells like that phantom smell you have when you're being put to sleep with anaesthetic... not sure if anyone will relate to that lol but it's the best description i can give
