Welcome to Maryport – twinned with Hell!
My afternoon trip to the wood yard in Maryport had to be redirected to Workington because of this massive fire! A local artificial turf factory has caught fire, thankfully no one was hurt.
The huge plume of smoke was visible ever from Workington some miles down the coast.
When I finally got back to Broughton Moor through the disrupted traffic the smoke was still clearly visible.
