Fire crews spent the night battling a blaze on an industrial estate.

The fire broke out on a unit on Martin Close, Blenheim Industrial Estate shortly after 9pm.

Five crews were called to the unit, which manufactures cricket bats, and spent hours tackling the fire in the single-storey building, which is around 40mx15m in size.

They used three hose reel jets, a jet and eight breathing apparatus to help bring it under control.

They were still there at 8.30am this morning to dampen down.
