  • Firefighters battle huge blaze beside Dublin airport

A huge fire that engulfed a recycling plant close to Dublin Airport in the Republic of Ireland is now "under control".

The blaze at a recycling plant near St Margaret's has now been brought under control.

Eight units of Dublin Fire Brigade (DFB) have been called in to fight the blaze.

People living in the vicinity of a fire near Dublin Airport are being advised to close their windows as a precaution. Drones were also used to help the firefighters analyze the situation and decide where to direct their resources.

Pictures posted on Twitter show that huge plumes of smoke billowing over the fire site can be clearly seen from the airport.

The family-run "scrap-metal specialists" collect metal from all over Leinster, dismantling old cars to sell some parts and disposing of others.
