Update on fire at recycling plant

in News

Ten pumps are still in attendance and firefighters are using three main jets as they tackle the blaze in some recycling material inside a large (250m x 100m) recycling plant at the site.

Some local residents are being evacuated as a precautionary measure and people are being asked to avoid the Stourport Road area due to local traffic congestion and thick smoke, made worse by the foggy weather conditions. Those living nearby are also advised to keep windows and doors closed until the fire is brought under control.
