Crews tackle fire at rubbish dump

First published in News

Firefighters are tackling a fire at a rubbish dump.

Three engines are currently at the waste site in Leighton Road, Hove.

They were called shortly after 1pm this afternoon (May 21).

Firefighters from both Hove and Preston Circus stations are tackling the fire with the use of breathing masks, hose jets and thermal image cameras.

More to come.

Surely a "Rubbish Dump" is a place where rubbish is left, the location you are reporting is a Waste Transfer Depot.
