FIREFIGHTERS are tackling a blaze at a recycling centre in Burnley.

Five engines from Burnley and an aerial platform ladder from Hyndburn are on the scene, in Accrington Road.

Ten tonnes of excavation waste inside a building was ‘well alight’, a fire service spokesman said.

The fire is believed to have broken out at around 11.20am this morning.
