Firefighters have released footage of the fire, which reached a height of more than 15 metres (50ft) and involved stacked plastic pallets used for making plastic crates for supermarkets.

A blaze turned into a tornado-like whirl as firefighters worked to extinguish a fire at a plastics factory in Derbyshire, England.

The "firenado" swept across the fields near the factory, as the fire sent dark plumes of smoke into the sky on Monday.

The fire caused extensive damage but nobody was injured.

Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, who were assisting local crews in Derbyshire, shared the stunning video on Facebook.

Much like a tornado, the 'firenado, ' or fire whirl, is formed when cool air comes into contact with hot air from above, causing the swirl.
