A HUGE smoke cloud could be seen from across most of Huntingdonshire on Monday morning after a fire started a potato store.

This picture was taken in Ramsey, but smoke could be seen in Huntingdon, on the A14 and through to parts of South Cambridgeshire.

The fire, which caused road closures and rail services to be cancelled, was at Abbey Produce in Whittlesey.

Eye witnesses report hearing an explosion prior to the blaze at the Funthams Lane site which acts as a main potato store for the nearby McCain's plant.

Ten fire crews were at the scene.
