FIRE crews removed paper burning inside a machine at a Bridgwater recycling centre this morning.

Two crews from Bridgwater were sent to Showground Road at 10.20am to reports of recycling on fire.

They discovered half a tonne of baled paper smouldering inside a compacting machine, and they used a lance to drag the paper out.
