FIRE crews were called to tackle a fire at a waste recycling centre in Bristol.

At 8.23pm last night crews from Kingswood, Bedminster, Brislington and Temple Fire Stations were called to reports of smoke at the centre on Carsons Road in the Mangotsfield area.

Upon investigation the cause of the fire was found to be in a pile of rubbish.

Crews used a jet to tackle the fire and then worked on ventilating the large building which was around 50 metres by 20 metres in size.

The cause of the fire was thought to be accidental.
