THREE wheelie bins were in flames on Hood Lane North in Great Sankey last night, Thursday.

Firefighters from Knutsford were called to the scene at 9.25pm, around the time when 15 Cheshire Fire crews were tackling a large blaze in Widnes.

The bins were on fire in a wooded area and firefighters used a hose reel jet to put out the flames.

Luckily nobody was reported hurt at the scene.
