Fire at Southampton recycling plant tackled for third day

Firefighters are tackling a large blaze at a recycling plant in Southampton for the third day.

Piles of domestic waste have been on fire at Willments shipyard in Hazel Road, on the Itchen riverside, since Friday morning.

The blaze is now under control but Hampshire fire service may have to remain at the scene for "several days" over fears it may re-ignite.

Smoke from the fire could still be seen in Southampton on Saturday evening.
