A man stated that he heard loud banging from a distance of a few miles. He initially believed it was the sound of a truck carrying metal. After it became extremely loud, I looked outside and saw smoke billowing across the sky from Mill Hill East’s industrial estates.
One person tweeted: “See the huge plume of black smoke coming from the M1” We hope no one was injured!
A nearby person was watching from the pub and said that the pub had just delivered a few beer cans to the firefighters. This is awesome!
“Disclaimer, they don’t drink them. They put them away.”
