Firefighters were called to a skip fire at Worksop Recycling Centre this morning (Wednesday).

The household waste tip is operated by Veolia on behalf of Notts County Council.

It is adjacent to Nottinghamshire Recycling Ltd where there have been several high profile blazes in recent months.

A county council spokesman said today’s fire started in a charity clothes bin at around 10.10am.

The recycling site closed for around half an hour while fire crews tackled the blaze.

It reopened at 10.45am.
