The Environment Agency has said there's no evidence to suggest a large amount of chemicals seeped into a canal after a huge blaze at an industrial estate.

More than 50 firefighters tackled the raging blaze at the Adamson Industrial Estate on Croft Road in Hyde on Saturday night.

A number of business units were destroyed as the flames reached three separate brick buildings at the site.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said a large amount of chemicals were stored within the estate, which is next to a stretch of the Peak Forest Canal.

The Environment Agency was called to assist and advised the fire service over pollution control measures.

One chemical believed to have been used on site was sulphuric acid.

But the Environment Agency said investigations found nothing to suggest the canal has been badly polluted.

A spokesman said PH levels in the water were normal and there are no signs of impact on wildlife.

In a statement, the Environment Agency said: "We have been assisting Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service in their response to a large fire on Adamson industrial estate in Hyde, which occurred Saturday night.

"Due to its close proximity to a canal, the Environment Agency advised the fire service on pollution control measures to limit the impacts of any potential risks to the local environment.

"This included the use of an environmental protection unit.

"We would like to thank Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service for their fantastic work to check the potential seepage of chemicals into the adjacent canal, these investigations concluded there is no evidence to suggest large amounts of chemicals have entered the canal.

"PH levels of the canal are normal and there are no signs of damage to wildlife.

"We worked closely with the fire service during this incident and adhered to current advice from the government regarding Covid-19."

The fire service meanwhile has now left the scene.

A specialist fire investigator however is due to return to the site on Wednesday in a bid to determine a cause.

Fire crews from 10 stations across Greater Manchester raced to the scene at 8.29pm on Saturday.

The fire involved a range of buildings across the site, some of which were three storey.

A 200 metre exclusion zone was placed around the industrial estate, the council closed a number of roads and trains were stopped on a line nearby.

There is smoke in the immediate vicinity and Network Rail have halted trains services passing through Hyde Central railway station. However, at present smoke is not drifting towards the nearby M67 motorway.

People living in the vicinity were asked to keep the windows and doors of their homes closed.

A significant part of the site is now set to be demolished.

A GMFRS spokesman said: "A fire investigator will return at 9am tomorrow as we continue to work to understand what caused Saturday's fire."
