Firefighters are tackling a blaze at a barn which is thought to contain about 100 tonnes of hay.

The fire has been burning at Rookery Farm, Chilcompton, in Somerset since about 11:15 GMT.

The B3139 road between Coalpit Lane and Parsonage Lane was closed in both directions and police directed traffic while crews tackled the fire. It has since re-opened.

Fire investigators and six fire engines are at the scene.
