PostSubject: Clean Up Starts After Major Fire in Byker, Newcastle   19th May 2011, 11:44 pm

I used to live about a 5min walk from where this incident took place yesterday, people were being evacuated and i was scared for friends and family....


THE huge clean-up operation has started after a major fire at a scrapyard led to part of Newcastle being evacuated.

An area of the East End was cleared and nearby residents were told to stay inside with their doors and windows closed.

Emergency services were called to Byker Bank at around 12.25pm. Plumes of thick black smoke could be seen as far away as Whitley Bay, Hexham, Sunderland and South Shields.

The surrounding area was evacuated as two people were treated by paramedics.

The flames came from the former Shepherd’s Scrapyard, on Albion Row, which has since been taken over 11 years ago by Ince Ltd.
