Road closures are still in place after a massive fire yesterday in Gorton.
Manchester Fire had eight engines out at the Wing Fat Chinese cash and carry retail outlet yesterday afternoon following the blaze which saw a huge cloud of smoke billowing across the city.
And there are still traffic implications…
Due to smoke the road will remain closed for now. Firefighters are waiting for the roof to be removed before tackling the remaining fire. pic.twitter.com/fJiW2zzZfB
