The fire, at a recycling plant in Smethwick, near Birmingham, started on the evening on 30 June, when the sky over the fire and downwind of it was quite cloudy in general.
But in the morning hours of 1 July there was a brief interval with only a few clouds, under which the black smoke plume could be seen meandering eastwards across to the coasts of Norfolk and Suffolk.
The fire was reportedly the largest ever seen in the West Midlands (Credit: BBC ), with a smoke plume rising 2 km (6,000 ft) and more than 200 firefighters tackling it.
