West Buckland straw barn fire under investigation

A fire that ripped through a barn in Somerset, destroying 50 tonnes of straw, is under investigation.

Devon and Somerset Fire Service was called to a farm in West Buckland near Wellington, on Saturday evening to find the four-bay Dutch barn alight.

Firefighters from Wiveliscombe, Street and Taunton attended and were at the scene all night to contain the blaze.

Two crews remain at the scene, and an investigation into the cause of the fire will begin later.
