FIREFIGHTERS have been tackling a blaze in a row of conifers in Great Witley caused by fallen power cables.

Crews were called at about 12.44pm after the trees caught fire.

The row of conifers outside Witley Court is about 100m long but not all of it caught fire.

The A443 Worcester Road was closed both ways between the A451 Stourport Road and the B4197 but has now re-opened.

Firefighters are now damping down at the scene.
