Forty firefighters were involved in battling a 'catastrophic' fire at an industrial estate in Uxbridge late last night.

Crews from six brigades across the borough fought the blaze from 10.55pm last night at the Powerflex unit in Wallingford Road, Uxbridge, and it took eight engines more than five hours to get it extinguished.

Powerflex, a manufacturer of polyurethane suspension and chassis systems for cars, issued a company message on their website which reads: "Due to a catastrophic fire in the Powerflex factory all orders will be delayed until further notice."

Around half of the units measuring 75x20m were damaged, and the cause of the fire is being investigated.

More as we get it.
