FIREFIGHTES made swift work of a fire which broke out in a bin in Winchcombe.

Two crews were called at about 10.15pm yesterday to Langley Road after calls from concerned neighbours there was a possible house fire.

Eleven firefighters from Winchcombe Fire Station and Cheltenham East Fire Station went to the blaze and quickly established that the fire was in a rubbish bin near the property.

They used a hose reel to extinguish the flames and left after 30 minutes.
