An eyewitness to the first truck fire in Swinemoor Lane, known as @ibizafc on Twitter, told Hull Live that he first became aware of the fire when seeing “an orange glow in the sky” while driving home from work. He came across the site of the fire at 12.45am. “There were just four people in the car park when I arrived, including the driver.”

During filming of the fire, there was “a massive explosion” from the truck. “It sounded like the loudest firework ever and blew the flames higher up,” he said. “It caused all the truck debris to be scattered in Aldi car park.”
