FIREFIGHTERS were scrambled to put out a fire on a landfill site near Didcot last night.

Crews from Didcot, Goring, Abingdon and Wheatley were called to the recycling and landfill site just before 8pm.

They worked with the site owners to extinguish the main blaze, which had caused smoke to billow into the air.
