FIREFIGHTERS tackled two incidents in the area yesterday, including a rubbish fire.

A crew from Wilmslow was called to Millington, near the Cheshire Lounge pub, where rubbish had been set on fire around 6.20pm.

Earlier, at 5.20pm, firefighters had attended a fire in the open in Thorneyholme Drive in Knutsford.

A Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "A small fire which was on open ground required firefighters to attend.

"The fire involved branches and one hose reel was used to extinguish the flames."
