Second major fire at Bourne recycling plant in last three months
Firefighters tackled a major blaze at a recycling plant in Bourne yesterday - just three months after a previous fire at the premises.
Crews from Bourne, Market Deeping, Billingborough, Corby Glen and Stamford, and the water carrier from Holbeach, were called to RW Riddle, in South Fen Road, just after 10.50 yesterday.
Three main jets, two hose reels and a portable pump were used to tackle the fire.
A Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said 1,000 tonnes of scrap and plastic recycling materials were destroyed in the blaze.
