A fire at a landfill remains ongoing almost 18 hours after it started. 

On Sunday evening, a fire broke out a Compton Bassett landfill near Calne with 30 firefighters rushing to the scene. 

As of 9am on Monday, two crews remain to 'smother' the flames, with Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue saying they will likely be there for some time.

A spokesperson said: "Two crews remain on scene, working jointly with on-site staff to smother the fire. We expect to be on-site for the foreseeable."

Hills Waste Solutions, who own the site, has also issued a statement. 

It said: "A fire was detected on the Lower Compton landfill site at 6pm on Sunday, June 10, the incident is ongoing and emergency services are in attendance.

"The landfill site has been temporarily closed, but all other operations on site are open. 

"We are working with the fire and rescue service, and other agencies to bring the fire under control.

"There has been no personal injury or damage to property as a result of the fire.

"Advice from the fire and rescue service is for local residents to keep windows and doors closed during the incident."
