Fire crews were called to two blazes involving farm machinery in Cornwall.

Two crews spent several hours putting out a fire in a combine harvester which was in a corn field at St Keyne, near Liskeard, on Saturday afternoon.

They set up equipment to relay water to the field after they found the vehicle well alight. The cause was accidental, the fire service said.

At St Kew in north Cornwall, two engines were called by a farmer when a large tractor caught fire in a field.

There were no reports of any injuries.
