The extent of the damage to the factory unit is not yet known, but there are no reports of any injuries.

Members of the public are being asked to avoid the area to allow operations to continue unhindered.

The road has been closed to traffic.

DUP MP for East Belfast Gavin Robinson said it was “worrying news of a large scale fire in the factory”.
