On Monday evening (3rd August) at around 8 pm, it has been reported by the Northampton Chronicle, approximately 30 to 40 cars caught fire at Intapart car parts site on London Road in Daventry.

Between 30 and 40 cars at the site were on fire. Seven fire engines and two water carriers were used to bring it under control, with support from Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Fire crews were able to prevent the fire spreading to other stock at the yard.

The A45 between Weedon and Daventry has now reopened.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.”

An eye-witness said:
