60 tonnes of wood ablaze

FIREFIGHTERS were called to a recycling plant where 60 tonnes of wood were ablaze.

Five Royston fire crews attended the scene off the A505 at Flint Cross, near Royston, at about 4.30am this morning (Wednesday).

The fire was still burning, although controlled, when the Crow went to press.

* In December, 1000 tonnes of wood and sawdust went up in flames at the same recycling plant, as well as a recycling machine.
