There's been a fire at a skip yard on Portland.

4 crews from Dorset Fire and Rescue were called to Victory Square last night - after smoke was seen coming from the building.

The fire was in a main unit at the rear of the warehouse which contained skips filled with scrap.

The fire was extinguished using 4 breathing apparatus and 3 main lines, and was under control just before 8pm.

It was started by an electrical fault and there was also fire damage to the contents of the skips contained within the premises.
