Firefighters were called to an industrial waste fire this evening.

On arrival crews reported that approximately 10 square metres of scrap cars, situated at the rear of an industrial unit, were alight.

Firefighters used a mechanical digger to separate the materials that were already alight to allow them to reach and extinguish the fire more easily.

The fire, which was extinguished by 0.23am, was caused accidentally by workmen on the site.
