Emergency crews have been damping down after the biggest fire in Gloucestershire since last winter.
More than 70 firefighters were called to the blaze at a recycling plant in an old quarry near Chipping Campden.
It started in the early hours. Fog and heavy smoke hampered efforts to put it out. Crews from neighbouring Hereford and Worcester were brought in to back up the Gloucestershire brigade. The cause is being investigated.

Now 2012 might have been the year of the Olympics, but this weekend in Gloucestershire the spirit of the games will be re-kindled. And just as the bruises die down after cheese rolling, The Cotswold Olimpicks include the famous shin kicking event.
One of Gloucestershire's oldest traditions takes place tonight. The World Shin-kicking Championships are part of the annual 'Cotswold Olimpick' Games, which date back 400 years. They're held in Chipping Campden on the Friday after Spring Bank Holiday.
