THE FIRE which has devastated a South Warwickshire business park is still burning.

Firefighters have been tackling the blaze which swept across Goldicote Business Park on Banbury Road between Stratford and Ettington throughout the night.

Although it is now under control, crews are continuing to damp down ‘hot spots’.

Fire control received the first report at 1.30pm yesterday (October 16) before 11 fire engines and a helicopter rushed to the scene.

The park was evacuated as crews worked to get the fire under control.

Advice was given to residents to take care on the surrounding roads and to close windows and doors where there was smoke in the area.

The cause of the fire has not yet been confirmed.
