Fire crews from Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service were called to a hedgerow fire in the Ridgeway Cross (Cradley) area of Herefordshire yesterday evening.

Crews received the call at just after 5pm, with reports of a hedgerow on fire. On arrival, crews from Malvern Fire Station discovered 10 square metres of woodchip, undergrowth, and hedgerow alight. This was quickly extinguished by crews using hose reel jet, lance and small gear.
