First published in News

A FIRE broke out on the banks of the Severn Valley Railway this afternoon.

Firefighters were called to the embankment off Northwood Lane, Bewdley, near Worcester at 4.24pm in the second incident in the area on the same day.

A crew from Bewdley extinguished both blazes, the first of which was around 50 square meters in size and the second 40 square meters, with one hose reel.

The fires are not suspicious and are likely to have been started by hot embers from the steam trains.
