FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze in a bin chute at a high-rise block of flats.

Crews from across the district attended the incident, at Ebor Court, in Westgate Gardens, Keighley, today.

The fire was on the third floor of the building.

A hose reel was used from the level above to extinguish the flames.
