SLIDESHOW: Hexthorpe blaze spreads to teddy bear factory

A huge fire currently raging in Doncaster has now apparently spread to an adjoining teddy bear factory.

Loud bangs have been heard coming from industrial units near to a fuel plant in Hexthorpe. There are reportedly gas canisters inside the buildings.

Thick black smoke is billowing into the skies and can be seen across Doncaster.

Firefighters have cordoned off the area and say chemicals are involved in the blaze alongside the Doncaster-Sheffield railway line.

The blaze broke out at the diesel recycling plant this morning and nearby offices have been evacuated.
