People living in the Abbots Langley and Leavesden area said they were woken up by a "very strong" smell of smoke during the night.

9.39am - Reporter at the scene says it still smells of smoke

Reporter Nathan Louis who is at the scene in South Way, by the junction with The Graylings, said: "There is no smoke really to be seen but looking through the bushes towards the buildings, you can still see some smoke. It definitely smells like there has been a fire.

"A couple of firefighters were putting up some tape on the edge of the site."

He said he could see one fire engine on the road, but believes there are probably more due to the number of firefighters on site. 

He said there were crews from as far as Sawbridgeworth.
