Firefighters worked through the night to tackle a huge compost fire.

The blaze saw one fifth of a 1,000 tonne compost pile destroyed after it had combusted at the Global Renewables plant, in Fleetwood.

Two crews, one from the port’s fire station and one from Bispham, were called to the Enterprise Way site at 11.20pm on Friday night.

They spent seven and a half hours extinguishing the fire.

No-one was injured in the incident and no buildings were damaged.
