Wessex Fire and Rescue Service were called out to assist with a fire at the Severnside recycling depot in Taplow. Fire crews had to work throughout the weekend tackling the blaze which started on a Friday afternoon.

An estimated 600 tonnes of paper and cardboard was destroyed in the fire and at its height, flames reached up to 21 metres in to the air.

Below are a selection of photos from the Severnside Depot during the fire, shown with kind permission from Chris and Simon Rowley, Severnside and Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue (all photos by Simon Rowley of Fire Aid International).

Bucks had 10 pumps on a 4 hour shift turnover, for 4 days (24 hours a day)!
Every 4 hours we had 20 pumps on-site
That meant there were plenty of fire crews too.
The fire kept burning day and night
Everywhere you looked there was fire. 36 hours later it was still burning
