FIRE crews have been tackling a blaze at a Cudworth scrapyard overnight.

Firefighters from Cudworth, Barnsley, Dearne, Tankersley and Rotherham stations were called to the fire on Boulder Bridge Lane just after 10:30pm.

They spent a number of hours tackling several tonnes of aluminum which were on fire.

One fire crew remains at the scene damping down.

An investigation into the cause of the fire will take place once it is completely out.
