Fire crews tackle large barn fire at Burlescombe

About 50 firefighters were called out to tackle a barn fire in east Devon.

The blaze at Burlescombe, near Tiverton, was reported at about 03:50 BST.

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said the barn was well alight, and there were fears flames could spread to 70 tonnes of fertiliser.

The A38 at Sampford Peverell was closed while firefighters moved the fertiliser away and left the other contents of the barn to "burn out".
