Have your say

FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze at a recycling centre.

Part of a 250-ton rubbish pile caught fire at Portsmouth Materials Recovery Facility, in Quartremaine Road, Copnor, Portsmouth, at 8.15pm last night.

Two trucks from Cosham turned up to deal with the situation.

Machinery on site was used to separate the rubbish and target the areas that were warm.
