Crews tackle Sambourne barn fires

Fire crews have been dealing with a major fire at a farm in Warwickshire.

About 1,000 tonnes of straw caught light in a barn in Middleton Lane in the village of Sambourne at about 22:30 BST on Monday.

A nearby barn also caught fire causing crews to erected a cordon amid fears of asbestos and concerns about live electricity cables in the barns.

Warwickshire Fire Service spent about eight hours fighting the fire and remain on site to damp down.
