Mortimer firefighters tackle skip blaze

Firefighters tackled a bonfire in a skip which they said had "got a bit out of control" last night.

Crews from Mortimer Fire Station used a pump to take water from a nearby lake to tackle the blaze.

They said the fire was lit to burn off rubbish but the person who lit it had done the right thing and called the fire service.
