A fire which began at a recycling plant near Grantham overnight continues to burn this morning.

Road closures are in place to keep traffic away from Mid UK Recycling on Barkston Heath, near Ancaster.

The A153 Willoughby Road in Ancaster is closed in both directions at the High Dike junction. Ermine Street is also affected by road closures. Diversions are in place.

More to follow.

UPDATE: The A153 is closed between Honington and Sleaford.

The High Dyke is closed between the Old Somerby roundabout and the junction with the A17.

Drivers are being urged to use their local knowledge to find alternative routes.

The reason for the wide closure is that there are various fire engines in the road and cars would not be able to get by.
