FIREFIGHTERS had to tackle recycling materials ablaze at a Southampton recycling centre.

A crew from Redbridge and a water carrier from Eastleigh attended the incident at the City Recycling Depot, in First Avenue, Millbrook, where a 40-yard recycling container was on fire at 7pm.

Crews were last night dampening down the fire at 9.30pm.

The contents of the container were destroyed.

No one was hurt in the incident.
