A BIN lorry has caught fire while on its round in Herefordshire, emergency services have said.

Two Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service crews from Whitchurch and Fownhope were called to the fire in Three Crosses Road in Ross-on-Wye.

A spokesperson said the fire, at 9.21am on Thursday (April 28), was put out using a hosereel jet and small tools.

There were no casualties, the spokesperson said, and no other emergency services were required.

Crews left the scene at around 10am after dealing with the lorry, which was "on its rounds".

It is not yet clear who owned the bin lorry, but Herefordshire Council has been approached for comment.
