Second Major Fire Strikes Recycling Centre

JUST two weeks after a fire a waste recycling centre - fire crews are battling another large fire at the same site.

Fire crews from across Northamptonshire have been at the Blackbridge Farm recycling centre at Burton Latimer since midday.

Six fire engines and the Incident Command Unit are currently attending the fire of large bales of clothes and plastics at the site, south of Kettering, close to the A6.

We're told there's a large amount of items which have been alight since midday, but there's no danger to the public.

There's reports of smoke blowing across parts of the A14 and drivers in the nearby village of Cranford have been told to be aware of a large amount of emergency vehicles in the area.
