THE dramatic scene of a landfill fire in North Wales last week was captured by a St Martins photographer last week.

Carl Edwards is a photographer and he had sent his drone up to the skies above north Shropshire to capture the night's sunset on Wednesday.

However in doing so, he also caught the long plume of smoke from the Hafod Industrial Estate in Ruabon last week.

Around seven crews were sent to the scene including Ellesmere, while firefighters from Chirk were also sent to help tackle the blaze after 7pm.

The image shows the extent of the blaze across North Wales and Shropshire.
