Barn fire in Lincolnshire destroys 500 hay bales

Investigators say a fire at a Dutch barn in Lincolnshire which destroyed 500 half-tonne bales of hay was started deliberately.

Crews from Leverton, Boston, Wainfleet and Spilsby were called to the fire at Nut Lane in Old Leake at about 2200 BST on Thursday.

It took firefighters most of the night to bring the blaze under control. No-one was injured in the fire.

Anyone with information about the fire is asked to contact police.
