A suspected arson attack at a farm in Shropshire has destroyed about £30,000 worth of straw.
The 700 bales caught alight in a field in the village of Wrockwardine just before 19:00 BST on Sunday.
Firefighters from four crews prevented it from spreading to surrounding fields and hedges.
Telford Fire Station manager Adam Matthews said the cause of the blaze was "probably arson", although other causes had not been ruled out.
