Reuters report that the company said no injuries had been reported in the fire that broke out at 0745 GMT, and added that police and 100 fire-fighters were at the plant, which only began generating power last month.

“The fire involves some 4000 tonnes of fuel in storage cells. At least two are very well alight,” the Essex County Fire and Rescue Service said in an update.
