Explosions from the Hotpoint trailer park off Shrewsbury Avenue in Woodston last night (Thursday) rocked Peterborough and caused a huge national story.

The large fire sparked a series of loud bangs and created a huge cloud of smoke which could be seen for miles, sparking a major emergency response.

Fortunately, nobody was injured in the blaze and investigations are ongoing to work out the cause.

Video footage from Jamie Lunn has captured the explosions going off repeatedly in Peterborough shortly before 7pm last night, while Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service has also released a video showing the widespread damage to the trailers which were carrying parts for white goods.

The fire service said more than 50 trailers were damaged.
