FIREFIGHTERS have for the last four days been tackling a fire involving a large pile of wood chippings in Barnsley.

Fire crews were first called to the incident, near Whams Road, Crow Edge, at 4.45am on Saturday morning.

Four fire crews from Stocksbridge, Penistone, Barnsley and Cudworth stations initially attended.

Firefighters have been using hose reel jets to extinguish the fire and have made fire breaks within the chippings to prevent the fire spreading.
