Crews from Bicester and Buckingham dealt with a large blaze involving tyres and wood chippings early on Friday morning. It broke out at Marsh Gibbon near Bicester.

Crews worked hard initially to establish a water supply from over 200m away and extinguished the main fire, while working with the landowner using a small digger to move the chippings.

Crews were able to leave the incident just before 5am.
