Fire in industrial shredder Burial Ground Lane, Farleigh Hill, Tovil

By Claire McWethy

Firefighters tackled a large rubbish blaze in Tovil this afternoon.

Two crews were called to Burial Ground Lane in Farleigh Hill at 2.20pm and used water jets to fight the fire.

It started in an industrial shredder on land owned by builder Pat Burke and involves "a large quantity of rubbish".
