A large fire at a tyre recycling plant in south Wales was tackled by emergency services for more than 24 hours.
At its height, 21 appliances and 100 fire-fighters from Mid & West Wales Fire & Rescue Service were at the Egan Tyre site in Aberafon docks area of Port Talbot.
The alarm was raised late on 12 July and the incident was described by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) as “particularly complex”, involving deep-seated fires within a large quantity of waste tyres.
A smoke plume prompted the authorities to place cordons around the incident and people were advised to stay clear.
NRW operations manager Huwel Manley said the agency had prosecuted the previous occupiers of the site over illegally stored waste and had used statutory powers to have it removed.
