UPDATE: 1,000 tonne timber fire still burning
A 1,000 tonne timber fire continued to burn at a recycling centre this morning with firefighters on hand two days after it began.
Crews were called at 7.10pm on Wednesday to Bridgefoot Farm Quarry, Heydon - near the A505 - after recycled wood, sawdust and one recycling machine caught alight.
Since then a number of crews have been in attendance - including a team from Royston.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue said: “There is one crew there and they have been there all night and so far it is still burning in a controlled manner.
“They have jets there ready to use on the fire if the wind changes but at the moment they’re letting it burn.”
