Fire crews from Hampshire and Surrey have successfully extinguished a major blaze in Yateley.

Crews were called to Vigo Lane to a blaze involving 75 tonnes of scrap metal last night (Tuesday 2nd April).

Teams from Basingstoke, Fleet, Hartley Wintney, Bordon, Rushmoor and Surrey spent a number of hours dealing with the incident.

People living in the area and in Camberley were urged to keep their windows and doors closed, as teams tackled the flames.

The advice was issued as large smoke was seen coming from the scene of the fire.
