Cemex’s South Ferriby works in Lincolnshire was hit by fire on Sunday, according to reports in the local press.
The fire, which began due to a fuel leak, spread to cables, pipework and a disused control room within the kiln room. In addition to damaging these areas, the remainder of the building suffered smoke damage.
This is not the first disruption suffered by the 0.75Mta plant. In December 2013 the facility was put out of action by flood water from the Humber river.
