A fire which set light to 20 bags of ammonia nitrate has destroyed a barn near Exeter.

Two quad bikes, a tractor and a combine harvester were also badly damaged in the fire which started about 00:00 BST.

Forty firefighters were called to the blaze at Broadclyst.

Relief crews were called in from Ottery St Mary and Topsham and the Environmental Protection Unit from Somerset also attended the fire.

An investigation into the cause of the blaze will be carried out later, a spokesman from Devon and Somerset Fire Service confirmed.
