Firefighters tackle fly-swarm rubbish site blaze
Fire crews have put out a fire which broke out on bags of rubbish at a waste storage site in Lancashire.
About 4,000 bags of rubbish have been left at the site of a former chemical factory in Nook Lane, Oswaldtwistle.
The removal of the rubbish, which has been attracting swarms of flies and angering nearby residents, to a landfill site started on Monday.
Lancashire Fire Service said the fire started at 02:15 BST and an investigation into the cause has begun.
