Fires hit two more recycling plants

Further blazes have hit the recycling sector in Manchester and Dublin, while Nottinghamshire Police have issued an appeal for two witnesses to a fire in Worksop

Two fire crews attended a fire on the afternoon 19 August at a scrap metal premises in Sandfold Lane, Manchester, where some 800 cubic metres of metal was on fire.

The fire was extinguished within two and a half hours by two hose reels, one covering jet and two extension ladders, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said.

Dublin Fire Brigade was called to a fire at the Greenogue Recycling Plant in Dublin on the morning of 21 August. Six fire engines were used to control the flames, and firefighters used breathing apparatus and a terex grab move material.

Meanwhile, Nottinghamshire Police have asked for two people caught on camera who are thought to be witnesses to a fire at a recycling plant at the Sandy Lane Industrial Estate, Worksop.

The blaze was reported around 10.30pm on 28 July and was “alight throughout the night”.

A statement read: ”Officers believe that the two people in the video may be able to help the investigation as they were in the area at the time and may have witnessed something; even the smallest piece of information could help.”
