A blaze in a shipping container full of bikes had to be tackled by firefighters for more than two hours.

The fire broke out in the container off the road between Preston Bissett and Gawcott shortly after 9.30pm yesterday.

Crews from Buckingham and Winslow used a jet, a hose reel and two sets of breathing apparatus to stop the blaze from spreading.

Crew commander Kieron Thomas, from Buckingham Fire Station, said: “There were quad bikes and motorbikes in there so it made it quite difficult to put the fire out.

“They were working on it for two and a half hours but it’s too early to say what caused it.”

More on this when we get it.
