FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze at a scrap metal yard.

Crews from Gosport and Southsea were called to Old Reservoir Road, in Farlington, yesterday at about 4pm.

Tim Spencer-Peet, station commander from Gosport, said: ‘A fire started in a metal crushing unit and spread to recycled steel nearby.

‘The initial response from the first crews was very important to get the fire under control and stop it from spreading further.’
