Fire crews tackle blaze at Derbyshire farm

A fire which destroyed a hay barn along with its contents at a Derbyshire farm has been brought under control by fire crews.

Eighteen firefighters from four stations were called to the blaze at Trusley Brook Farm near Ashbourne at 2230 GMT on Monday.

The fire is not thought to have been started deliberately.

Chris Smith, from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, said the cause of the fire had yet to be established.

He said: "It is over quite a significant area, so that is obviously an ongoing process we're facing."

He added that investigations might continue into Wednesday.

The Derventio Brewery, which is based on the farm, was not affected by the fire.
