At least 15 trailers are on fire, with several fire crews already at the scene, as well as police and the ambulance service.

The explosions are now said to have stopped.

The emergency services have yet to give more information on the blaze.

The East of England Ambulance Service have sent a large number of resources but there have been no injuries, a spokesman said.

Cambridgeshire police has posted on Twitter this evening: “We are currently on scene assisting Fire and Ambulance on Celta Road, Woodston at a large fire. Please assist us by keeping the area clear so our vehicles can get where they need to. There may be road closures as well, so please check for details.”
