'Arsonists' set 800 hay bale fire on Swanage farm

About 800 bales of hay have been destroyed in a blaze at a farm in Dorset which firefighters believe was started deliberately.

Crews were called to the fire in Swanage, which also damaged a barn on the farm, at 15:33 BST.

A farmer assisted Dorset Fire and Rescue Service by using a digger to remove bales that had not caught light.

Firefighters were at the scene until about 19:00. They will carry out another inspection on Saturday.
